US electric car maker Tesla has filed a lawsuit against Sweden's state transport agency over delays in registering new vehicles during the strike, business newspaper Dagens Industries (DI) reported on Monday.

Sweden's largest industrial union IF Metal clashed with Tesla over the collective agreement for mechanics who went on strike on October 27 and no longer service their cars, writes Poslovni hr.

Members of other unions, including postal and dock workers and cleaners, joined them in a show of solidarity, prompting a halt in the distribution of license plates for Tesla vehicles.

Last Friday, 50 workers at Swedish key parts supplier Hydro Extrusions, a subsidiary of Norwegian power and aluminum producer Hydra, joined the strike.

"They supply parts for the Tesla factory in Berlin and if this disrupts their business, we hope to force them back to the negotiating table," IF Metalla's negotiating secretary Veli-Pekka Saikala said on Friday.
