Union groups: ‘Save money – sell Saab’

The heads of the local chapters of four trade unions represented at Saab headquarters in Trollhättan in south west Sweden have written a letter to US media urging General Motors to protect American taxpayers' money by saving Saab.

Below is the text of the letter in full:


General Motor’s way to a healthy company has included the sale of Saab Automobile AB and the brand Saab.

As soon as this plan was announced several bidders for Saab appeared and still do!!

The best economical solution to save money/cost avoidance for General Motors is to sell Saab, rather than to wind down the company. GM will be left with a risk of huge cancellation costs and big risks of claims.

Since the US Government (US citizens) still own approx 60% of GM, it is a waste of US tax payers money not to sell Saab!!!

Saab’s wind down impact on Swedish society is at least as big as GM’s impact in the US.

Save Money – Sell Saab!!!
