Grammatical number

Again from the Paul Banks report on Glorious Leader's speech to the CAW-FFAW conclave, in the Telegram:
"One of my darkest days in my life was looking out from the eighth floor office window at Confederation Building and seeing 10,000 of my own employees on the street protesting our action."

"My employees"?

Then why not "my action"?

Or is that, as so often the case with Glorious Leader (May His Preternatually Thick Hair Always Be Perfectly Parted), another instance of the Royal We?
