Report: Chrysler Considers Unit Sales

Chrysler LLC has proposed selling or closing two units, according to a The Wall Street Journal article that cites contract talks between Chrysler and the United Auto Workers union. The units are Mopar, which makes auto parts, and Chrysler Transport, which manages deliveries of supplies to the carmaker's plants. Together, they employ around 1,300 people. Cerberus Capital Management recently acquired an 80% stake in Chrysler, with former parent Daimler retaining 20 percent.
