Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently discussed the idea of unionization among Tesla’s factory workers.

In a series of tweets this past weekend, Musk explained that Tesla workers are free to form a union anytime. Musk added that he has no power to stop employees from forming a union, considering that California is a pro-union state. Musk, however, clarified that so far, Tesla’s employees “just don’t want to,” considering that the company already offers healthcare and stock options.

Musk also clarified allegations which suggested that Tesla let go of employees who were attempting to unionize. According to Musk, only one known union supporter was terminated by the company, and it was due to the former worker’s behavior towards other employees.
