Surprising Reason Tesla Is Transporting Cars By Truck
Why are there a bunch of Tesla vehicles on this truck being transported? The answer may surprise you, as this X.com user passed by not one, but two trucks full of Tesla vehicles.
According to X.com user,
"NicklasNilsso14", the reason for this is that Union IF Metall have called out for a strike, but there are very few employees striking.
For note, IF Metall is a trade union in Sweden and was formed in a 2006 merger between the Swedish Industrial Union and the Swedish Metalworkers' Union.
Then, IF Metall called out for several other Unions to Block Tesla from carrying on with their services, such as:
* Dockworkers unloading Teslas in 4 docks in Sweden
* Transport companies in Sweden no longer carrying Teslas
* Some damage repair shops, who are not Tesla repair shops, have decided not to repair Tesla vehicles
* Electrician workers are not going to install Wall connectors and make any repairs on Superchargers
* Mail and package serviced are closed
* Garbage collection and other services blocked
What is interesting about this is that there are 6 people out of 130 striking at Teslas 8 Service Centers in Sweden.

This Seems Like Nonsense for Tesla
This seems like nonsense and a very small distraction for Tesla. If dockworkers are on strike, then Tesla will not stop their operations just because they can't use a dock. They will find trucks and move their vehicles that way.
Tesla is a very innovative company and MOST of the people that work there are very onboard with Tesla's mission. There are going to be a few "bad apples" though that cause things like this to happen.
Workers should be more focused on making Tesla a valuable company and getting invested in Tesla stock than trying to form a union, go on strike, and force Tesla to pay these workers more wages. You can't get rich by demanding more money - you get more money by providing value to the marketplace of the world, or in this case, to Tesla as a company.
It's unclear to me why these 6 workers are striking and why these minor disruptions are happening in Sweden. I will keep a look-out for more news on this, but for now, it seems minor and non-problematic - if not annoying though.
Tesla have no dock to get cars from, so they transport them by truck from other countries!
