With Jordin Williams and Carlos Reymon Gabriel
Today the Tesla service workers in Sweden who are members of IF Metall union have been on strike since October 2023 against the billionaire union buster Elon Musk. Their union sees the struggle as a fundamental and existential struggle to defend union rights in Sweden and the Netherlands. Many other workers including metal workers, dockers and even postal workers are refusing to deliver cars and even mail.

Speakers:
Jordin Williams – A Swedish American trade unionist who will report on this strike and the lessons for Swedish and US workers who want to organize Tesla workers at Fremont and throughout the country. At Fremont Musk fired 700 workers who wanted a union, conspired to avoid workers compensation and has systematically discriminated against women and Black workers.
Carlos Reymon Gabriel – Fired Tesla worker at Fremont, California
