Boeing protest

Bill Barkley Jr., who has worked for 42 years as an electrician at Boeing, is among picketers at Boeing's C17 plant in Long Beach. Employees who assemble C-17 cargo planes in Long Beach went on strike Tuesday after labor negotiations broke down over medical benefits. Boeing employs about 1,700 people in its Long Beach plant.
