I’m proud to be part of a team that is bringing green cars to the masses. As a production worker at Tesla’s plant in Fremont for the past four years, I believe Tesla is one of the most innovative companies in the world. We are working hard to build the world’s #1 car — not just electric, but overall. Unfortunately, however, I often feel like I am working for a company of the future under working conditions of the past.
On January 10, 2017, five members of the California State Assembly sent Tesla a letter expressing concerns about the company’s confidentiality policy:
“We are concerned that over-broad language in the confidentiality agreement violates these provisions and has resulted in a chilling effect on workers’ ability to engage in protected activity. As we are confident that this was not your intention, we respectfully request that Tesla revise this policy to protect employee rights and comply with the law, and immediately communicate this clarification to all workers.”
