Stellantis, the other automaker in the Big Three group, was spared additional strikes this week. Fain said that reflects recent progress in contract negotiations between the union and that company, which makes Jeep, Chrysler and Dodge vehicles.

The newly announced extension of the strike means that some 25,000 of the union's 146,000 members will be protesting for better wages and working conditions.
