On Second Day of Autoworkers Strike, UAW Cites 'Productive' Talks With Ford
About 12,700 UAW workers remain on strike
Negotiators for the United Auto Workers (UAW) and Ford Motor had "reasonably productive discussions" toward a new contract, the union said on Saturday, while officials at Chrysler parent Stellantis said a proposal to resume work at an idled Illinois factory has fallen through.
About 12,700 UAW workers remained on strike for a second day as part of a coordinated labor action targeting three U.S. assembly plants - one at each of the "Detroit Three" automakers.
"As we have said all along, Ford has bet on the UAW more than any other company," said Mark Truby, Ford's chief communications officer, in a statement. "We are committed to reaching an agreement with UAW that rewards our workers and allows Ford to invest in the future. We have to win together."
