TTela continues to keep close vigil on all things related to Saab and today features no less than
two three articles concerning one of the biggest unions organizing Saab employees. UPDATE at the end.
First story is about IF Metall’s invitation to Sweden’s PM. They decided to formally invite him since he had so far declined their first invitation.
We fully understand the PM has a strained schedule. We thus offer a certain degree of flexibility concerning the time, but the visit ought to occur as soon as possible ends Håkan Skött’s letter. All here at SU wish them the best of luck and we hope the PM will finally man up and face the music.
Antonov took the opportunity to meet with IF Metall’s chairman Stefan Lövén this afternoon. Stefan Lövén emphasized the importance of bringing in Antonov.
First they said the government should not interfere with private businesses. Now however, when there is a solution in sight, they choose to intervene, but not to ease Saab’s burden.
According to Mr Lövén, Antonov said Saab’s heritage is important to the brand. Both development and production will continue in Sweden.
It is of the greatest importance that production remains in Trollhättan
Update: Finally, even Muller has had some meetings today. Victor met with representatives of the Chinese government, NDRC. NDRC has also made an appointment with Maud Olofsson. An approval from NDRC is needed for Saab to proceed with Youngman and Pang Da.
…so Reinfeldt can’t be bothered to drive his BMW to Trollhättan and meet with the union representatives, but NDRC happily travels half way around the world in order to stretch out a helping hand? The contrast is startling.
Thanks Audun for the tips!
