Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is in the sights of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) after the body said it is investigating the electric-car company for allegedly intimidating and harassing a union organiser.

Workers’ complaints, filed with the NLRB in April but dating back to a series of events ranging from November to March, refer to efforts with the United Auto Workers to form a union at Tesla’s plant in Fremont, California - a move the car firm’s management opposes.

Media reports said that, according to NLRB documents, workers distributing union literature were told by security to leave the premises, employees were surveilled and “interrogated,” and managers attempted to prohibit workers from discussing union activities.
