NPR's Wendy Kaufman reports on negotiations scheduled to begin today between Boeing and the International Association of Machinists, the union representing about 50-thousand workers at the company. Expectations are high for the talks, compared to 1995 when the union struck for 69 days when discussions broke down. Job security and benefits will be on the table, at a time when the company has been downsizing and cutting costs.
