MILAN/DETROIT -- Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has cancelled his appearance at the Paris auto show, a spokesperson for the carmaker said on Tuesday without giving any details.
Marchionne, who also serves as CEO and chairman of luxury sportscar brand Ferrari, was scheduled to meet with journalists on Thursday.
"The media availability with Sergio Marchionne on Sept. 29 at the Paris Motor Show has been cancelled," FCA said in a statement. A spokesperson later added that Marchionne would not be coming to the show at all.
A year ago, Marchionne cancelled his appearance at the Frankfurt auto show after FCA was picked as the target company in labor talks in the U.S.
Unifor, the union representing Canadian auto workers, named FCA as its next negotiating target after workers ratified a new contract with General Motors. Unifor on Sunday said it set a tentative strike deadline of Oct. 10 for those talks.
