Musk said last week: “I disagree with the idea of unions. I just don’t like anything which creates a lords-and-peasants kind of thing.”

Isn't he the world's richest person currently?

“I disagree with the idea of unions. I just don’t like anything which creates a lords-and-peasants kind of thing.”

Tweet sent from private plane.

The propaganda here is that they want you to believe that collective action against them makes them lords - but they were lords before, unionisation just limited that power: The limitation of power makes them cry their propaganda.

Good ... then he should sit down with the unions and talk to them as equals

[-] [email protected] 27 points 5 months ago

He has been. No idea if he still is, seeing how X is in freefall.

It’s understandable that he doesn’t like lords and peasants, since his family’s fortune was built on slave labor. He would naturally much prefer a master-and-slave kind of thing.

I don’t think X ever was part of his valuation. I

I think the French guy who owns Gucci is currently ahead because of the Twitter stupidity.

Twitter was a drop in the bucket for him. 44bil lost and still in the top 3 most wealthy people in the world. He has way too much money for his own good and we are watching in real time what that kind of money does to a person

I don't think the money is the root of evil in Musk. I think he was a bad man before he got rich. What we are witnessing is the result of a bad man who got too rich and now he can assert his will with his wallet in politics, economy, business, and anything else he chooses.

It's sickening.

Hey Elon, go fuck yourself.

I wish reporting would challenge the lords and peasants assertion. Workplaces with collective agreements don't require union membership, but all workers benefit from the collectively bargained terms of employment.

As is [Nordic] tradition

Don't fuck with Sweden!

That is great news

This is the best summary I could come up with:

Tesla has lost a legal action against Sweden’s postal service as a dispute with Nordic trade unions escalates.

A Swedish court said on Thursday that PostNord did not, for the time being, need to deliver licence plates to the electric carmaker that were being blocked by the postal service’s workers, in the latest twist in a battle over collective bargaining agreements.

A large Danish pension fund on Wednesday said it would sell its holdings in Tesla because of the carmaker’s refusal to enter into such deals, while Denmark’s largest trade union has joined strike action by the company’s workers in Sweden.

Nordic countries represent key markets for Tesla, which has a policy of not agreeing to collective bargaining and has said its staff have as good or better terms than those that IF Metall is demanding.

In a case related to the PostNord action, a court on 27 November ruled that the Swedish Transport Agency must find a way to get licence plates to Tesla.

Some Swedish pension funds have urged Tesla to sign the agreement with the union, but have so far held off from selling their shares.
