Tesla is preparing to fight back against a recent ruling by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which ruled that the company must allow employees to wear union clothes.
On September 6, Tesla filed a petition for review with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, asking the court to review the Labor Council’s decision.
“Applicant Tesla, Inc. is petitioning this Court under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 15(a) for review of the National Labor Relations Board’s Additional Decision and Order,” the document reads. Tesla has also attached a copy of the Labor Council ruling.
“Since the Board’s Additional Decision and Order is contrary to law, the Petitioner respectfully requests the Court to grant the petition, review the Board’s Additional Decision and Order, set it aside and grant Petitioner all further injunctions. grant that the court deems just and equitable,” the document stated.
Last month, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that Tesla violated the rights of its employees by enforcing uniforms and telling them not to wear union merchandise. This sounds like a silly case of abuse of political power, given that uniforms are a form of workplace safety.
NLRB chairman Lauren McFerran said Tesla is officially in violation of labor laws following a 3-2 ruling by the board of directors. According to the Labor Council’s three voters, encouraging its employees to wear the company uniform violated the National Labor Relations Act of 1935.
This strange ruling from the Labor Council places importance on unions over safety. Tesla takes safety very seriously and unsurprisingly it is fighting back.
