The United Auto Workers is asking the federal labor board to investigate Tesla Inc. over a tweet by Elon Musk.

In a complaint filed Wednesday and obtained by Bloomberg News, the union alleges that the electric-car maker violated the National Labor Relations Act by threatening to take away employee stock options in retaliation for engaging in protected union activity.
