On Friday last week, the news broke that Tesla had dismissed somewhere between 300 and 1,000 employees (depending on which news story you read). While Tesla did not confirm the number of employees dismissed, it did state that the firings were the result of annual performance reviews within the company.

Other sources close to Tesla suggest that the firings were motivated by other factors, too, including alleging that they included retaliation against pro-union workers at the Fremont production facility where the Model X, Model S and Model 3 are made.

But who’s really right? And what’s really going on at Tesla?
