  STRATFORD, Connecticut - Sikorsky Aircraft today issued the following statement regarding the strike by workers represented by Teamsters Union Local 1150. Sikorsky Aircraft, based in Stratford, Conn., is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

"Sikorsky Aircraft is disappointed that the union has not accepted the company's revised contract proposal, which is a fair and generous offer. The union continues to reject the same health care plan that covers all of Sikorsky's other Connecticut hourly and salary employees.

"The company's revised proposal, presented last Monday (March 13) to the federal mediator, addresses the union's economic concerns by rearranging annual wage increases and cash bonuses.

"During the strike, all Sikorsky facilities remain open for business."

Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacturing, and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high-technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
