Boeing Co. says it will re-start negotiations with its machinists union this weekend, hoping to end a five-week strike that has cost the company an estimated 21 aircraft deliveries. "We have kept lines of communications open and have agreed to pursue additional talks through the federal mediator," said Boeing's chief negotiator, Doug Kight. Union officials said they will be looking for concessions on job security. "I'd hope they're not wasting our time on this," warned IAM lead negotiator Mark Blondin.
