OSLO -- Norway's largest private sector labor union said it will block transit shipments of Tesla cars meant for the Swedish market, as part of a growing Nordic movement to support striking mechanics in Sweden.
In a separate development, PensionDanmark, one of Denmark's largest pension funds, said it had decided to sell its holdings in Tesla over the EV maker's refusal to enter into agreements with labor unions.
Swedish unions led by IF Metall have taken industrial action against Tesla since October to try to force the company to sign collective bargaining agreements with mechanics.
Dockworkers in Sweden already refuse to unload Tesla cars arriving by ship, and broad groups of Swedish electricians, cleaners, postal workers and at least one supplier also said they would deny the company their services.
Norwegian union Fellesforbundet said it intended to send a "clear signal to Tesla" and do what was necessary to ensure that any vehicle shipments via Norway to Sweden were blocked, but declined to say exactly which measures it might take.
