Tesla workers take industrial action in Sweden

6 February, 2024

Elon Musk, CEO of electric car giant Tesla, is in dispute with Swedish workers and their unions after more than two months of strikes.

This represents the first cases of industrial action against Tesla anywhere in the world, with ten Swedish unions so far taking action against the company.

The issue at the core of the original dispute concerns Tesla and the Swedish industrial union IF Metall, which sought a collective agreement to provide better wages and benefits for mechanics in Tesla’s repair shops.

The union’s members in Sweden have been on strike since 27 October.
