Tesla Faces Industrial Action in Sweden

1 Mins read

Denmark’s largest union, 3F, has announced its support for striking Swedish mechanics in their bid to secure a collective bargaining agreement with Tesla. As part of their action, the union’s dockworkers and truck drivers will refuse to offload and transport Tesla cars destined for Sweden, effectively thwarting the company’s attempt to circumvent the ongoing blockade at Swedish ports.

Jan Villadsen, Chairman of 3F Transport, emphasized the importance of adhering to labor market agreements in the Nordic region. “Even if you are one of the wealthiest corporations worldwide,” he stated, “you cannot simply disregard established rules and regulations.”

The strike by mechanics from Sweden’s IF Metall union has been ongoing since October. Multiple other Swedish unions have joined in the industrial action, amplifying its impact. Dockworkers at all Swedish ports have ceased unloading Teslas, electricians are refusing to work on Tesla workshops and charging stations, and postal workers are declining to deliver any mail to Tesla workplaces.

3F acted in response to a request for support from IF Metall.

Elon Musk, Tesla’s Chief Executive, previously denounced the Swedish industrial action as “insane” on X, formerly known as Twitter.

In Norway, the Fellesforbundet union has also warned that it will consider how to respond should Tesla attempt to deliver cars destined for Sweden within Norwegian borders.
