Norway Union May Block Tesla Cars Designed For Sweden

Norway’s Fellesforbundet, the country’s largest private sector labour union, on Wednesday, said it could from Dec. 20 start blocking any transport of Tesla cars meant for the Swedish market.

Swedish unions have taken industrial action against Tesla since October in a bid to force the car manufacturer to sign collective bargaining agreements with mechanics.

“We consider blocking the transportation of Tesla cars through Norway to Sweden unless Tesla reaches an agreement with Sweden’s IF Metall union,” a spokesperson for the Norwegian union told Reporters.


On Tuesday, Denmark’s 3F labour union also said it would support the Swedish mechanics by refusing to unload or transport cars made by the U.S. auto company for customers in Sweden.

The Norwegian and Danish unions said their actions would only affect cars that are meant for the Swedish market.
