Elon Musk has broken the law

A federal appeals court ruled in 2018 that Elon Musk violated US labor law by tweeting that Tesla factory workers would forfeit stock options if they chose to unionize.

The tweet promptly drew the consideration of work activists, and in 2021, the NLRB, answering a grievance from the Unified Car Laborers association, found Musk had undermined representatives. Tesla has argued that Musk was using the tweet to make the point that employees at other automakers don't get stock options. Wilma Liebman, chair of the NLRB, saw things differently. She stated to Bloomberg in 2018: "The employee is going to hear it as, 'If I vote to unionize, stock options will no longer be an option.'"
