Workers in Sweden have been on strike against Tesla for nearly a month, and now CEO Elon Musk has finally responded. Musk called the situation "insane" in a tweet, after Swedish postal workers joined the strike by refusing to deliver Tesla license plates. The strike began when 130 mechanics walked out after their labor union was not recognized by Tesla. The strike has since spread to other workers in Sweden, including dockworkers and electricians. The Swedish union, IF Metall, stated that the strike is about fair wages, pensions, and insurance for all Tesla employees. Unionizing at Tesla has been difficult, with attempts by US workers failing due to aggressive tactics by the company and weak labor protections in the US. The National Labor Relations Board has accused Tesla and Musk of illegal anti-union activities. Despite the challenges, the strikes in Sweden may inspire Tesla workers in Germany, where unions have been pressuring the company for a collective bargaining agreement. German unions claim that Tesla pays its workers less than other carmakers and discriminates against sick employees. Tesla has applied to double the production capacity of its German plant, which would make it the largest car factory in Europe.
