The Local 743 Negotiating Committee would like to THANK YOU all for supporting The Machinist’s Union during our recent contract negotiations with UTC Aerospace Systems, formerly known as Hamilton Sundstrand Corp.
The members of Local 743 in Windsor Locks, CT, voted overwhelmingly to approve a new three-year contract with the aerospace manufacturer. The contract includes general wage increases for each of the three years. Just as important, the Negotiating Committee gained some valuable job security language and was able to maintain the pension, and hold medical costs to a minimum.
The new accord, which covers nearly 1,000 members, was fittingly ratified on May 5, the 125th anniversary of the founding of the IAM.
The Negotiating Committee worked extremely hard on this agreement and put in countless hours at the table working with UTC to reach an agreement that reflects the needs of the membership and the company. The proof is in the results.
We sincerely appreciate your support during the negotiations. Just knowing you are a friend to labor means a lot to us and our members. In recognition, we have listed our sup-porters on our website (LL743.org) and strongly encourage our members to personally thank you by patronizing your establishments as frequently as possible.
