Tesla has been in deep shit with the unions of Scandinavia ever because it didn’t ratify a collective bargaining settlement with a bunch of Swedish mechanics in October. These mechanics, who’re a part of a distinguished Swedish Union, IF Metall, proceeded to go on strike, which spurred different regional labor unions to assist their effort. Lately, employees with Sweden’s submit workplace, PostNord, stopped delivering license plates to Tesla as an act of solidarity with the putting employees.

Predictably, Tesla’s response to this motion was to sue the federal government of Sweden. This spurred a Swedish courtroom final week to rule that the Swedish Transport Company, the dad or mum company of Sweden’s submit workplace, was obligated to ship license plates to the EV firm. Nevertheless, The Guardian now reviews that these license plates received’t must be delivered in any case—at the very least not for now. A Swedish courtroom determined that PostNord employees shouldn’t be compelled to ship license plates in the event that they don’t wish to. This newest judgement is an “interim determination” that shall be in impact till a “last ruling,” The Guardian reviews.

PostNord’s cessation of Tesla license plate deliveries has made issues troublesome for the electrical car firm, and different Swedish employees—together with electricians, dock employees, cleaners, and drivers—have all deserted (or are threatening to desert) the corporate as properly if it fails to discount with the mechanics. Tesla’s organized labor downside seems to be spreading, too. Employees in Denmark and Norway have additionally instigated actions towards the automobile firm as a present of solidarity. This makes it all of the extra ironic that, in a latest interview, Elon admitted: “I disagree with the thought of unions.” Apparently, the sensation is mutual.
