From the article:
" Tesla conducts performance review cycles every six months. Employees receive a performance rating from 1 to 5 in each cycle that helps them calibrate their work with the expectations of their job. In the worst case, if an employee fails to meet their performance expectations they will be let go. "
An enhanced Welchism management move. Welch would only can 10% of workers annually.

“The impacted employees were identified on February 3, 2023, which was well before the union campaign was announced.”
Does anyone believe workers weren’t talking & organizing prior to February 3rd & the February announcement? Or that Tesla didn’t learn about the disgruntled workers prior to February? Or that such behavior would automatically move such workers into the worse catagory?

Tesla has had a contentious with the NLRB for a while.

A year ago Musk threw gauntlet down to the UAW. So I suspect they took up Musk challenge.
