August wages finally on the way

According to TTELA, Västra Götaland County Administrative Board (länsstyrelsen) gave its bank the task of transfering the wages to the reconstruction administrator yesterday and the wages should therefore be on the adminsitrator's account today. The amount transferred is SEK 78 million and cover wages to 300 employees at Saab Powertrain and 3,071 employees at Saab Automobile.

When the employees will have the wage on their accounts depends on how fast the transfers between the different banks are carried out.

"I can not promise a definite date right now. What I can promise is that those who are working on this issue are doing their best so that the employees will receive the wage payment as quickly as possible," Gunilla Gustavs from Saab's information department told TTELA.

As soon as the August wages are paid, then the wages for September is around the corner.

.... and now, Friday afternoon, TTELA reports that many of the employees have now received their pay. And on Monday the pay for September is due.

Personally I am very happy for the employees. I can't even imagine how living a whole month without a pay check has been like!
