A Swedish court has ruled that the nation’s Transport Agency must allow Tesla to collect license plates for its vehicles. Deliveries to the automaker have stopped as part of an ongoing labor dispute.

Although the Transport Agency technically never stopped issuing license plates to the automaker, it said it had no way to deliver them, because it is contractually obliged to use Postnord. Employees at the postal service joined a strike against Tesla out of sympathy with mechanics at its service centers.

However, the agency must allow the automaker to collect the license plates itself or face a fine of 1 million Swedish crown (around US$96,700 at current exchange rates), reports CNN. That follows an interim judgement by a district court in the city of Norrköping, which has given the license plate issuer seven days to comply.
