U.S. labor agency says Arizona carmaker Lucid Motors illegally broke up union

The Phoenix-based regional director of the National Labor Relations Board is accusing a Casa Grande maker of electric luxury sports cars of anti-union activities.

A spokesperson for Lucid USA says they are confident that there is no factual basis for the complaint.

The U.S. labor agency is accusing Lucid Motors of illegally firing or transferring workers because they joined or helped a union and to dissuade other employees from exercising their rights. Other accusations include that Lucid confiscated union literature, created an impression of surveillance and threatened employees.

A Lucid spokesperson said in a statement that the company respects employees’ federal rights to choose whether or not to organize.

The sides are due to appear before an administrative law judge in early October unless there is a settlement.
