Hundreds of Tesla workers have been fired for organizing for union representation and for speaking out against health and safety violations on the job. But they are fighting back! The UAW has filed charges with the NLRB alleging broad retaliation against workers, and they need broad support. This is a call to every Climate Justice activist dedicated to just transition to defend the Tesla workers’ right to have a voice. Join the rally at Tesla to support basic labor protections for the work force building the electric cars that will drive us into a clean energy future. Bring signs that proclaim “Green Jobs should be Union Jobs,” or the like. There is almost no parking at the Tesla factory, so we are meeting at Ross in Fremont and boarding shuttles. The Tesla Organizing Committee needs to know how many folks are coming, so be sure to RSVP to be guaranteed a seat on the shuttles. And if you’re interested in car pooling to Fremont, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
