WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Jahana Hayes (CT-5) released the following statement on the United Technologies Corporation (UTC) would be merging with Raytheon:


“I’m encouraged that the vast majority of the UTC workforce will stay in Connecticut, but plan to keep a close eye on this deal and be in contact with the company and state and local leaders to ensure that UTC maintains its commitments to the state. UTC’s Connecticut employees built this company through their hard work and standard of excellence. These employees have invested years into the company and I expect that they will see that same investment returned by leadership regardless of the corporate name on their paychecks,” said Hayes.
