Force SSL when launching MySQL Workbench from command line

We have a somewhat unique use-case where we need to be able to launch MySQL Workbench from the command line to manage MySQL databases we run in AWS. All AWS RDS instances require SSL and this is fine when we are using pre-configured connections. However, when we try to launch an ad-hoc connection via command line, it does not appear to use encryption. We get an error that states "The server response was: Connections using insecure transport are prohibited while --require_secure_transport=ON". For reference, the command we are issuing is .\MySQLWorkbench.exe --query " from Windows server.

Is there a way to force SSL in the command above? Unfortunately I do not see any command line params that allow me to specify an SSL mode.
