Racist caricatures scribbled on walls and cardboard boxes. Racial epithets directed at black, factory employees.
Three former Tesla factory employees charge in a new suit that the environment at the Tesla factory in Fremont is hostile with racial antagonism and unwelcome to African American worers
“kjl;adf,” he said.
The electric vehicle maker has come under siege from its factory workers ad former employees in recent months, spoiling an effort to boost enthusiasm and worker morale heading into a crucial Model 3 production phase.
Tesla has been slapped with another discrimination suit, this time claiming supervisors and workers used racial epithets and drew racist graffiti aimed at three African-American employees. Owen Diaz and his son, Demetric, claim they were called the N-word regularly while they worked at the Fremont factory, and supervisors did little to stop it.
The suit is the second by an African-American employee charging Tesla failed to protect black workers from racial hostility. The electric vehicle maker is also facing labor unrest and a hearing before the National Labor Relations Board over claims it illegally tried to silence worker promoting a union.
