A regional NLRB official tossed out the complaint on Friday, according to a report from Reuters, following the Workers United union’s initial filing of the complaint in February. The initial filing alleged that Tesla had fired the employees “in retaliation for union activity,” though the ruling clears the automaker of the claim.

Following the original complaint, Tesla said it had selected the fired employees before the union announced labor efforts at the factory, as a normal part of the company’s performance review structure. The union continued organizing after Tesla denied the allegations, and it plans to follow up on Friday’s ruling.

Workers United said it will request that the NLRB general counsel’s Office of Appeals re-evaluate the dismissal of the claims thrown out on Friday.
