The United Auto Workers union said just after midnight Tuesday (14 September) it would extend its national labour agreement with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on an hour-by-hour basis, signalling hope it could reach a tentative pact on a new four-year deal overnight, marketwatch.com reported though there was no sign of that so far. At 5am EST, the Detroit Free Press' Alisa Priddle tweeted: "...still awaiting UAW deal with Fiat Chrysler."
