Willard Wirtz conferred, with Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley and offered his assistance toward ending the strike. "Insofar as can be determined, there is no basis for optimism toward a settlement in the near future," the department spokesman said. The last negotiation session was Sunday in Daley's office.
