Update: 14: 17 / 14: 37
Are there days where it just enough? Yes, they exist. The union union makes an application for bankruptcy of the car maker. The situation, according to Union spokesman Andreas Olsson, has become untenable and the limits of the reasonable have been exceeded.
Not everything is lost yet. Let us remain confident. Because Gunilla Gustavs from the Saab press office said that the reconstruction application will be followed up and that an appeal will be filed today. If the court agrees and the situation is better today than on Friday - because there is a € 70 million contract with Youngman, the bankruptcy filing will be canceled.
But, as the saying goes, “In court and on the high seas you are in God's hands”.
The bankruptcy filing was filed for Saab Automobile AB, Saab Powertrain AB and Saab Tools AB. The union said that despite the bankruptcy petition, Saab could receive money and pay wages. Wondering on which planet the men and women of the Union trade union live. It became known that the decision was taken by the union headquarters in Stockholm. Against the desire of the base in Trollhättan, which has appealed in large part to the union leaders continue to wait.
The court in Vänersborg now decides within 3-5 weeks on the application, which can still be withdrawn at this time. Only when the court agrees, only then does the state wage guarantee.
The question is whether Youngman has not built in an “exit” for this case in a caring way, before € 70 million is now paid. At least one of the questions that are currently unanswered.
Guys, it's a drama I do not want to comment on. To what extent does the reconstruction proposal and the objection of Saab now make sense, I can judge as non-lawyer and non-Swede in any way. Updates follow.
