Union Construction Unrest at Tesla Gigafactory

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that 350 union affiliated construction workers walked off the job at the Tesla Gigafactory construction site in Northern Nevada, with about 100 of them reportedly actively picketing the project. Union officials from the Building and Construction Trades Council of Northern Nevada claim there is an increasing presence of non-union, non-Nevada resident workers on the Project, and cites this as an alleged violation of the company’s agreement with Nevada that secured tax break concessions. Tesla reportedly denies the union’s allegations, and notes in a written statement that “Nevadans comprised 74% of construction workers during the 4th quarter of 2015” on the job site.
