Good luck trucking across the sea. And having to deal with the brexit bureaucracy

You know there is both a tunnel between UK and France and a bridge between Denmark and Sweden?

Doesnt make it an efficient option, but it is possible.

True. Still gotta deal with Brexit bureaucracy. They can't just transport things from UK into EU without a ton of permits, fees and paperwork. Then they have to truck through two countries striking against them. Every avenue Tesla tries to get around unions can be shut down with another sympathy strike. Gas station workers can refuse to sell them gas for instance. If they're electrical vehicles, well, there's already a strike in place. Unions can outlast Elon.

Don't the strikes need to target Tesla?

Like repair shops could prevent repairs because to get parts they need to interact with Tesla, which they will refuse, but if a Tesla needed gasoline, can a gas shop actually prevent a customer from filling their tank?

The strike isn't against the customer, so I'm not sure that'd be allowed?

The strikes would target trucks transporting Teslas. Not actual Teslas.

So you're saying gas stations refusing to fuel trucks transporting a Tesla? If those trucks are a 3rd party company would that be okay? Can they sympathy strike against a different entity?

100% agree if they are teala employees operating the trucks.

This whole thing and all the side implications are fascinating to watch unfold

[-] Algaroth@lemmy.world 2 points 6 months ago

More likely that third party company would be seen as scabs or join the strike. If seen as scabs they will get the same treatment as Tesla and individuals can even be banned from the Union.

[-] NotMyOldRedditName@lemmy.world 2 points 6 months ago

Eventually I think Tesla wouldn't use someone that'd also join the strike, so probably a foreign non unionized trucker, but treating then as scabs make sense then and blocking them that way.

Thanks for all the insight and discussion!
