Tesla must reimburse workers and hold a public meeting in its factory explaining how it broke labor laws after unfairly preventing employees from unionizing, a judge ruled in a National Labor Relations Board complaint Friday, according to media reports.
Administrative Law Judge Amita Baman Tracy found that CEO Elon Musk violated national labor laws when he implied via tweet that Tesla workers who unionized would have to give up their company stock options.
The company must hold a meeting at its assembly plant in Fremont, California, and Musk or the NLRB will read a statement explaining how Tesla broke the law. Musk must attend, the judge ruled.
p.s. I love how Musk said, “everybody already gets healthcare”-a great example of how MFA would take healthcare out of the employer’s leveraging toolkit.
