On 29 June 2012, Swedish producer of trucks and city buses Scania announced plans to cut 142 jobs at the unit in SÅ‚upsk in September 2012. The dismissals will affect mainly workers in the production departments.

The main reason for the company's decision is said to be a fall in the number of orders. Klas Dahlberg, director of the company, said Scania in SÅ‚upsk is to decrease production by half and stay on this level for the next few years.

The company is to implement four programmes for redundant workers: early retirement programme; termination of employment by mutual agreement together with financial compensation; temporary-exempt employment for the time of unpaid leave; temporary-exempt employment for the purpose of higher education.

Scania has been operating in Poland since 1995. The unit in SÅ‚upsk currently employs 700 people.
