As a union member myself for most of my 40 year career (CWA, not UAW) , I can all but guarantee you Aptera is way too small (in a good way) to interest the UAW to organize. The UAW is far more interested in organizing companies like Tesla and other non-union EV companies with traditional manufacturing assembly lines that require many more people to assemble just one vehicle than Aptera’s much more simple-4 main parts assembly. As long as Aptera treats its employees well with things like stock options and an inclusive work environment, I doubt there would be any internal interest in unionizing either. That’s pretty much the game plan Honda, Subaru, Toyota, BMW, Volvo, Hyundai/Kia, Nissan and Volkswagen have used for several decades, to keep their plants non-union. I think I left one or more out, but you get the idea.
