Swedish producer of trucks and city buses Scania announced the loss of 200 jobs at the unit in S?upsk. The dismissals will affect both production and administration departments. The main reason for this decision is a shrinking order book.  The company is in the process of negotiating with the local trade unions the conditions of the restructuring plan. Scania also announced dismissals in Sweden affecting 50 jobs.

Founded in 1891, Scania is a major Swedish automotive manufacturer of trucks and buses. Currently the company employs over 41,000 people in about 100 countries. Scania has been operating in Poland since 1995. The factory in S?upsk employs 537 people.

The ERM reported on previous restructurings at the company in 2012, 2009 and 2007.

Updated, 09-04-2014: Scania announced that 146 jobs were cut in the S?upsk factory as a part of the restructuring programme that was implemented in March 2014. Initially, it was expected that 200 jobs would be cut in S?upsk but the number was revised downwards. The source reports that the retention of the 54 jobs was a result of new contracts between Scania and Norwegian and German carriers.
