Government orders Elon musk to delete the anti-union tweet

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Thursday announced that electric carmaker Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk have violated federal labor laws and ruled that Musk should be removed from an anti-union tweet 2018. In this case, Musk discouraged Tesla workers from uniting between United Automobile, Aerospace and American Agricultural Implementation Workers (UAW), signaling that they would lose their stock options for doing so, and Tesla fired an employee who led the move. . Organize staff.

The Bloomberg report says it has been a long process to reach this stage, and that the decision could have an impact on how Tesla brings its team forward. 

Bloomberg reports that the NLRB does not have the power to punish executives for violating labor laws. However, its decisions can appeal and used in federal court. The offensive tweet, which is still online as of press time reads: “There is nothing to stop the Tesla team on our car plan from the polling station union. They can do TMRW if they want. However, why pay union dues and why leave stock options at all? Our safety record is twox better than UNWA and everyone has already received healthcare.”

 The NLRB has ruled that Musk must be present during a meeting to read the workplace rights of Tesla employees, and that written notices of those rights must be displayed at all Tesla plants.

However, how long it took to deliver a verdict against a crime back in 2018 cannot avoid. Cindy Astra, vice-president of UAW, told Bloomberg, “While we are celebrating justice in today’s ruling, it highlights significant flaws in US labor law.” “There is an organization here that has clearly broken the law and still these workers have taken to the streets three years before justice was served.”
