A branch of the Syndicalist trade union has threatened strike action at a petrol station in northern Sweden if managers refuses to remove pornographic material from the shelves.

The union's Umeå branch plans to picket the OKQ8 petrol station in Degeränget, Piteå unless its demands are met by 6am on July 9th.

Union member and petrol station employee Niklas Svenlin said he had long pleaded with his bosses for the removal of pornographic products from the store.

"At most places of work it is perfectly natural not to have to handle porn, and that's the way it should be everywhere," he said in a statement.
