Trollhättan: Production stop at Saab continues.

Update: 20: 58

The Saab plant in Trollhättan has now been idle for a week. As Saab fans, we are connected to the brand and wait for good news from Sweden every morning. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like a good time for miracles.

The current press release from 7: 58.

The Swedish news agency TT has released an averaging of Saab owner Spyker this morning after the production downtime will continue for another week, provided the Swedish National Debt Administration gives the green light to the real estate business reported yesterday.

Utdraget production stop for Saab
Saab-agenen Spyker Cars NV räknar med att det en vecka att få igång produktion på Saab-factories i Trollhättan igen även om Riksgälden öppnar för finansiering med försäljning av fastigheter.

Update: 13: 20 At least for Saab employees, the employer's crisis will not have any financial consequences for the time being. According to a statement by Hakan Scott, spokesman for the local trade union IF, an agreement from 1996 on flexible working hours applies. 

This would cover today and tomorrow. How it should continue then still needs to be discussed.

Update 20: 58 As the Swedish news agency TT reports, the Saab production stop also affects more and more suppliers. Several companies have already forced his staff to send home. Around 80 workers of the supplier IAC in Färgelanda, Skara and Gothenburg had to go home, all employed by a temporary employment agency. IAC manufactures instrument panels and interior for Saab.
