Today I am in the Saab in terms of Saab. First in the Saab center Frankfurt, where a long awaited spare part for my Saab 9-5 arrived from Sweden, then in other Saab things. The spare parts supply at Saab is still working, sometimes a bit slower. The blog therefore has a few hours break. Quick another look to Trollhättan and Stockholm.
The lack of wages has become an issue and Victor Muller promises to make payments "as soon as possible." Frankly speaking, everyone involved is not exactly sensitive to the employees in this topic. It is Christmas soon, the children and friends want to see gifts under the Christmas tree. Several Saab employees, the number is in three digits, have taken emergency loans from the unions. A really responsible handling of the topic would have created a lot of sympathy for Youngman and Muller in Trollhättan and elsewhere in the Saab world. In any case, the money should be in the accounts before the trial on Monday.
There is also something to be said about Lofalk, presumably the court will refuse to resign, but that is not yet confirmed.
In Stockholm, the next round of negotiations begins with Rachel Pang and Muller. It's going to be a long weekend, that's clear. By Monday, the situation will clear up and we'll see.
More when I'm back at the desk.
