"Boeing's Strike: Go Figure" (Workplace, Sept. 26, 2005)
"Boeing's strike: Go figure" (Workplace, Sept. 26) contained a typographical error and should have read: "The company's pension offer of $66 a month would add $16 million a year to its pension outlays.... The $80 the IAM wants would hike that by [not "to"] $29 million a year...." That would be 2.3% of the machinists' total wage-and-benefit expense, not 1%, as depicted in the accompanying table. [On Sept. 25, Boeing agreed to a three-year settlement of more than $270 million.] "The real reasons you're working so hard" (Cover Story, Oct. 3), should have said 31% of adults got less than seven hours of sleep on weekdays in 2001, not 34%. The source is the National Sleep Foundation. In "A ray of hope for the fee fighters" (Finance, Sept. 12), the table should have said that a large-cap value account for the State of Alaska was managed by Invesco Institutional.
