PW Machinist Union On Strike

Mon Dec 03, 2001 10:53 pm

Okey guys, all of Pratt and Whitney's machinist in Connecticut went on strike last night effective 12:01 AM after voting by over 75% to reject management's latest contract offer.

Now, Im not going to argue over whether or not I think the contract is fair or not.

But, with the current downturn in the aviation industry, do you think this spells hard times (like, goodbye PW bad times) for Pratt?

Lets hear your thoughts!
