Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) fly with street, shares jumped up over 3,41% in before session on Tuesday as The chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board and Tesla Inc (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk had a “constructive conversation” on the agency’s investigate into a fatal crash involving a Tesla vehicle that was operating in semi-autonomous Autopilot mode, according to agency.
The NTSB on April 1 had declared that it was “unhappy” that luxury electric car maker Tesla (TSLA) had made public information regarding the crash of a Model X vehicle that killed the car’s driver. NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt “had what he explained as a very constructive conversation with Mr. Musk more than the weekend,” according to agency spokesman Peter Knudson. “They discussed the investigation of the March 23 Tesla crash, NTSB investigative processes, and Tesla’s work to address the safety recommendations that were issued last year.”
A Tesla spokeswoman refused to comment.
Tesla needs users to decide to keep their hands on wheel at all times before they can use Autopilot. Users, however, routinely brag they can use the system to drive hands-free. Tesla declared a week following the accident that vehicle logs showed no action had been taken by the driver right before crash and that he had received earlier warnings to put his hands on the wheel.
Another NTSB spokesman, Christopher O’Neil said on April 1;
“The NTSB is looking into all aspects of this crash including the driver’s previous concerns about the Autopilot.”

General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) try to make new thrust in street and making different trends, stocks trading ended with 0.40% to $37.83. At what time Lee Bum-yeon lost his job along with around 2,000 other union workers in 2001 following South Korea’s Daewoo Motor went bankrupt, his neighbors at supermarkets and bakeries gave his young daughters free snacks and bread.
Lee Bum-yeon said;
“People felt sorry. People felt heart-broken. They were worried how we were going to make a living. Now, with General Motors cutting some 2,600 jobs and threatening to leave South Korea in the absence of steep union concessions, the once sympathetic public is nowhere to be seen.
“I don’t think anyone is feeling for us anymore,” a grim-faced Lee, who was rehired by GM a year after it bought Daewoo in 2002, told Reuters outside GM’s Bupyeong factory near Seoul.
South Korea’s reputation for militant unions and rigid labor practices has long been cited as contributing to high labor costs and a persistent discount for corporate Korea. Shares of South Korean companies are typically undervalued in comparison to their global peers, a phenomenon known as the “Korea Discount”. Now, like unions in other major auto producing countries, Korean labor leaders are under pressure to make concessions as automakers look to shift jobs and investment to countries with lower costs.
“I expect militant unions to become more reasonable, which would lead to enhanced labor flexibility,” said Kim Sung-soo, a fund manager at LS Asset Management. “Unions have learned a lesson from past incidents where they can lose all if they go militant.” The share price of GM attracts active investors, as stock price of week volatility recorded 2.93%. The stock is going forward to its 52-week low with 18.52% and lagging behind from its 52-week high price with -19.10%.
