    This is getting as bad as the VW situation.

    Union accuses Tesla of spying on workers at Buffalo plant

    A union has accused Tesla of spying on workers and improper firing at the company's Buffalo solar products plant in an unfair labor practice charge.

    The United Steelworkers union, one of two unions attempting to organize workers at the South Buffalo plant, filed the charge this week with the National Labor Relations Board.

    Specifics of the allegations against Tesla, including the number of workers involved, were not immediately available. A note on the NLRB's website said documents regarding the case may require redactions before they could be publicly viewed.
    Last December, the Steelworkers and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers launched a drive to organize production and maintenance workers at the RiverBend factory. The Steelworkers said workers there had reached out to that union about organizing, and the Steelworkers and IBEW agreed to jointly work on the effort.

    Tesla was required by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) earlier this year to post signs at its Fremont, California, factory affirming the right of its employees to engage in union-related activities. The Guardian first reported the existence of the signs.

    The sign was dated March 22 and said Tesla was required to display it for 60 days.

    Tesla has violated labor laws according to an Administrative Law Judge.

    Tesla violated labor laws by blocking union organizing, judge rules
    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 judge also found that Musk wrongfully terminated one worker for union activity, ordering the company to reinstate them and offer back-pay. The electric car maker also wrongfully issued a warning to another union supporter.

    Since the thread mentions Tesla workers, this fits in here.

    Tesla will slash employee pay and furlough employees
    Tesla will cut pay for all of its salaried employees and will furlough hourly workers until May 4, when it intends to resume production of electric cars, according to an internal e-mail that multiple employees shared with CNBC. The pay reductions are expected to be in place until the end of the second quarter.
    Health orders, implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19, forced Elon Musk’s electric car company to wind down production at its main vehicle assembly plant in Fremont, California.
    The new pay cuts follow Tesla’s first-quarter vehicle production and deliveries report, which pleased investors — the company said it delivered approximately 88,400 vehicles and produced 103,000 in Q1. Tesla has yet to withdraw guidance it gave investors for 2020, saying it should “comfortably exceed” 500,000 vehicle deliveries for the year.

    Different company but same man and same bullsh*t.

    Union targets Elon Musk's $655K funding request after he defies coronavirus health order
    Entrepreneur Elon Musk and one of his companies are once again at odds with union leaders – as the Teamsters attempt to block a SpaceX request for government subsidies Friday.

    In a letter sent to the California Employment Training Panel, which is expected to consider SpaceX CEO Musk’s request for funds, the Teamsters asked the panel to reject the request for $655,500 in subsidies because Musk runs businesses that “tamp down on the collective bargaining rights of employees and disregard the safety of workers.”

    “At a time when too many hardworking Californians are lined up in miles-long food bank lines trying to feed their families, Mr. Musk is looking to fatten up at the public trough once again,” the letter read. “He has a proven track record of enriching himself and his companies instead of being a good corporate partner who understands the value of operating a fair workplace. He, and his company SpaceX, are not deserving of taxpayers’ dollars.”
    Meanwhile, Musk has threatened to move operations for his electric auto company, Tesla, to Texas after he was prevented from reopening his plant in Alameda County, California.

    Part of the problem in American politics and how they control the taxes on business. They give big corporate enormous tax breaks while the company gives unionization efforts a fight. Then the whole tax burden eventually falls on the working man while the wealthy elite dance all to way to the bank.

    Texas County Gives Thumbs Up to Tesla Factory Tax Break
    The prospect of a Tesla Inc. factory in the Austin, Texas, area has moved a big step closer to reality, after Travis County commissioners on July 14 approved tax breaks the electric vehicle maker requested.
    The tax breaks are worth a minimum of about $14 million over 10 years if the company invests $1.1 billion in the area.
    Under the terms of the deal, the value of the tax incentives to Tesla could rise significantly if the company invests more than $1.1 billion in the manufacturing plant, which it has said will employ 5,000 people.
    The amount also will rise if the agreement eventually is extended for an additional decade, as both the county and Tesla currently envision.

    Sometimes people's arrogance gets them in the end.

    Tesla found guilty of union busting
    In 2018, Tesla CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter “Nothing stopping Tesla team at our car plant from voting union. Could do so tmrw if they wanted. But why pay union dues & give up stock options for nothing?” That tweet began an investigation into the company by the NLRB into union-busting at the company.

    Now three years later, the board has found that Musk not only violated federal Labor law with that tweet but that he also illegally fired an employee, Richard Ortiz for protected union activity. Ortiz was part of a campaign called “Fair Future at Tesla” which is an ongoing campaign by the UAW to organize the electric car company.

    In their decision, the NLRB found that Musk’s tweet went above a typical statement that the company wants to stay union-free and was seen as threatening. This was exacerbated by the fact that Tesla considers communications from Musk, who founded the company, as official company communications. It is illegal to threaten to take away pay or benefits from workers if they are found to be organizing a union.
