(Reuters)-Tesla Inc has appealed a ruling by the National Labor Relations Board, which ruled that the electric car manufacturer violated U.S. labor laws, and according to the agency In response to the order, CEO Elon Musk deleted a tweet from the account.
The electric car manufacturer filed a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans on Friday to review the NLRB̵
In the petition, Tesla asked the court to review the order and grant Tesla “any further relief that the court deems fair and reasonable.”
Last month, NRLB ordered Tesla to instruct Musk to delete the tweet and publish an announcement on illegal tweets at all facilities across the country, with the text “We will take appropriate steps to ensure that Musk complies with our instructions.”
In a 2018 tweet, Musk wrote: “Nothing can stop the Tesla team in our car factory from voting for the union. If they want, they can do so. But why pay union dues for free and give up stock options? What? Our safety record is 2 times better than when the factory adopted UAW, and everyone has access to medical care.”
The NLRB also instructed Tesla to resume its original position and revoke the 2017 prohibition on distributing union documents in its parking lot during non-working hours, as well as the prohibition on distributing union stickers, leaflets and pamphlets without prior permission.
