Pratt and Whitney Workers Rally for Their Jobs

(NECN: Brian Burnell, East Hartford, Conn.) - Workers at jet engine maker Pratt and Whitney are rallying for their jobs. The company's contract with its machinists union expires on Sunday, and the plant is planning to close two engine repair shops.

The move could result in the loss of up to 1,000 jobs. Workers say they've given union officials the authority to call for a strike vote if a new deal doesn't get done.
