Tesla says Buffalo layoffs part of performance review, not over union campaign
SCOTUS could narrow federal protections for labor unions
Forbes editor-in-chief Steve Forbes discusses the Supreme Court hearing a liability case that could prove devastating for labor unions on ‘The Evening Edit.’
Tesla refuted claims that it fired workers at its upstate New York plant for trying to unionize.
Rather, the electric vehicle manufacturer said the layoffs were part of a performance review cycle, according to Barron's. About 4% of the employees that worked on the Autopilot labeling team at the plant were cut, the automaker told the outlet.
However, on Thursday, the Tesla Workers Union, the group seeking to organize at the Buffalo plant, filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) claiming the company let go of dozens of workers immediately after their union drive went public this week.
