Insider: NLRB rules that Tesla repeatedly violated labor laws

In a 3-2 decision on Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that Tesla repeatedly violated labor law. In the report, they say that Tesla coercively interrogated workers involved in organizing, used gag orders to keep them from talking to the media, and fired a union activist in 2017. They also targeted Musk's tweets in 2018, saying he "unlawfully threatened" workers when he said that workers would "pay union dues & give up stock options for nothing" if they formed a union.
