No, I'm afraid not. This was asked and answered in the developer chat. The meaning behind that quote is that in the course of the single-player campaign the Consortium occasionally has the same goals as the Rebellion and/or the Empire, and so technically speaking works with them for brief periods of time. In the Galactic Conquest and Skirmish games it's every faction for itself.
