A year after the decision was made to close up the assembly shop at Volvo Trucks in Umeå, the notices to 350 employees were given today, according to Swedish Radio P4 Västerbotten.

"There are many people who are terribly sad and disappointed now, and who now have to wait for the answer to the question: 'Will I have to leave, or somebody else?'," the chair of the union Jan-Olov Carlsson told the radio.

The reason behind the notices is that assembly will be moving to Tuve, outside of Gothenburg.

According to Volvo, the original number of people who were going to be put on notice was 500, and that has been cut down to 350.
