The workers, who are members of Teamsters Local 1150 and are based at Sikorsky operations in Connecticut, Florida and Maryland, ratified the contract in a 2,235 to 66 vote. Under the terms of the contract, workers are in line for a 3 percent raise this month and additional 3 percent raises over the next four years. They will also receive nine cost-of-living adjustments during this period plus a $5,000 ratification bonus that will be divided into payments in January 2018 and February 2021.
