Tesla Says Plant Musk Reopened Finally Has County's Approval

Source: Bloomberg

Tesla Inc. told employees that a California county health official has now signed off on safety measures the company took last week at its car plant as it restarted production in defiance of the area’s shutdown order.

The Alameda County health officer’s approval means Tesla has local support to resume full production starting this week, Laurie Shelby, the company’s environmental, health, and safety vice president, wrote in an email to staff Saturday that was viewed by Bloomberg News. Representatives for Tesla and the county didn’t respond to queries outside regular business hours.

The county’s authorization could resolve a highly contentious episode in which Elon Musk threatened to move Tesla’s headquarters and future programs out of California and sued the county over its health officer’s resistance to reopening the factory in Fremont. It’s unclear whether the chief executive officer will now follow through on his warnings, which also included shifting the company’s manufacturing out of the state.

California Governor Gavin Newsom said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Tesla didn’t get preferential treatment over other companies.

3. 1. Musk is a jerk

 

2. Musks shoots his mouth off
3. Musk had a point.

That plant is highly automated. Workers monitor the assembly and do cursory physical work. They don't work in close proximity.

4. SO Musk, I think as a taxpayer we should revisit your contract for space flight............

I personally don't like companies blackmailing state government with threats and intimidation..........because somewhere along the line the state gave you a lot of tax incentives..........that as a taxpayer pay for ...............so you can really go and pound sand with your libertarian BS.....................

5. So the asshole caved. Why didn't Elon agree to these measures in the first place?

What an entitled douche.

The Board of Directors should muzzle him. He is hurting the Tesla brand and electric car adoption in general.
