On May 20, 2018, Musk wrote on Twitter: “There is nothing to stop employees in the factory from voting to form a union. If they want to form a union, they can do so tomorrow. But Why do they pay their membership fees for no reason and give up stock options? Safety records show that our factory is twice as safe as it was under UAW and everyone can enjoy medical insurance.' p>
The committee then ordered Musk to delete this tweet and publish this illegal tweet publicly on all its websites. The committee said: 'We will take appropriate measures to ensure that Musk abides by our orders. '
Tesla also fired an employee before because the employee participated in the activities of organizing a union.

The National Union of Auto Workers (UAW) has been trying to organize 10,000 workers in the factory to form a union. Tesla filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans on April 2.
