German union condemns Swedish union's Tesla strike as 'illegal'

IG Metall says IF Metall's actions against Tesla Sweden violate labor laws.

IG Metall Declines to Join Action

Germany's largest trade union, IG Metall, has labeled a strike against Tesla's Swedish operations by Swedish union IF Metall as "illegal." According to IG Metall spokesperson Markus Sievers, "That would be illegal. You strike for your own business, for your own wages. A political strike would mean violating the duty to work, and then the employer could take action against the employees."

Most Tesla Sweden Employees Continue Working

The majority of Tesla Sweden employees have opted to continue working despite IF Metall's strike. They cite satisfactory working conditions and wages as reasons to not participate in the union action. IF Metall argues that collective bargaining agreements hold cultural significance in Sweden, regardless of individual Tesla employees' opinions.

"If IG Metall got to decide, Tesla's employees would have a collective agreement. But the initiative must come from the employees," said an IG Metall press spokesperson.

Background on Tesla Sweden vs. IF Metall

IF Metall aims to pressure Tesla Sweden into signing a collective bargaining agreement, but CEO Elon Musk has directed the company not to sign any such agreement.

The fight has led to IF Metall taking legal action against Sweden's Transport Agency and Postnord courier service after Tesla stopped receiving necessary license plates to deliver vehicles to customers. In response, IF Metall has called on unions internationally to take action against Tesla. Unions in Norway, Denmark, and the United States have planned sympathy strikes and blocks on Tesla imports to Sweden.
