Meanwhile, officials at Chrysler's parent company, Stellantis said a proposal to resume work at an idled Illinois factory has fallen through, David Shepardson and Joseph White reported for Reuters.


About 12,700 UAW workers remained on strike for a second day as part of a coordinated labor action targeting three US assembly plants - one at each of the Detroit Three automakers.

There was no sign of a breakthrough as of Saturday afternoon. However, the UAW's comment about the tenor of talks at Ford was more positive than the union's characterization of progress ahead of the kickoff of the strikes.
