SEATTLE (AP) -- As Boeing executive Jim Albaugh spoke to an aerospace conference in New York, recent strikes by the company's workers in Washington state weren't far from his mind.

"We've had strikes three out of the last four times that we've gone to the table with the union," he noted Wednesday morning. "To me it was a lose-lose for both of us."
