Blue-collar labor union file for bankruptcy

This afternoon the blue-collar labor union at Saab, IF Metall, went to Vänersborg District Court and asked that the court declare Saab bankrupt. This was an expected move by the union and necassary in order to secure its members wages through the state wage guarantee.

This means that all the unions at Saab, except for the engineers' union have asked the court to declare Saab bankrupt. The engineers' union has decided to wait so far, but will soon also be forced to file to secure its members wage through the wage guarantee.
