GM's Saab scales back layoffs after union talks

STOCKHOLM, April 14 (Reuters) - General Motors’ (GM.N) Saab Automobile unit said on Tuesday it would lay off 701 employees after talks with labour unions, scaling back the originally planned 750 that were given notice of redundancy a month ago.

Saab spokeswoman Gunilla Gustavs told Reuters the 646 blue-collar workers and 55 white-collar employees would work their last day at Saab on Friday.
