Machinists overwhelmingly OK United Tech contract

Workers at the reorganized aerospace business of United Technologies Corp. have overwhelmingly ratified a three-year contract that raises pay and pensions and boosts health insurance payments.

Members of Machinists Local 743 at UTC Aerospace Systems in Windsor Locks voted 583-16 on Sunday to approve the contract.

Union Local President Tony Walter said union members won an annual 2.5 percent raise and a $2,000 signing bonus. Pensions will be increased by $7 per month for each year of service and employee contributions to health insurance coverage will increase by as much as $12 a week. He says union officials and members are ecstatic with the new agreement.

UTC spokeswoman Judy DiScipio says company and union negotiators worked hard to reach an agreement they found acceptable.

The Charlotte, N.C., division was created last year after United Technologies’ $18.4 billion purchase of aerospace parts maker Goodrich Corp
