A group of federal appeals court judges in New Orleans is deciding whether a 2018 Twitter post by Tesla CEO Elon Musk unlawfully threatened Tesla employees with the loss of stock options if they decided to be represented by a union.

The National Labor Relations Board deemed it an illegal threat, and the case involves a post made during United Auto Workers organizing efforts at a Tesla facility in Fremont, California.

“It’s not in the workplace,” Judge Cory Wilson said.

“It’s still getting to the workers,” attorney Daniel Curry said.

“Nothing stopping Tesla team at our car plant from voting union. Could do so tmrw if they wanted. But why pay union dues and give up stock options for nothing? Our safety record is 2X better than when plant was UAW & everybody already gets healthcare,” Musk wrote in 2018.
