The management of the company took advantage of the partial lifting of quarantine and decided to return all workers to the workshops in Nevada
Tesla management has decided to fully restore the work of the plant in Nevada, which produces batteries for electric vehicles, reports The Verge, citing an internal letter to the company.
The publication indicates that the leadership of Tesla initially announced a partial resumption of production in Nevada, where the authorities went on to soften quarantine measures, but then changed its position.
Valeria Workman, head of the human resources department at Tesla North America, promised that for the safety of workers, the company will launch additional transport to the plant so that people can maintain a social distance. She said that those employees who fear for their health can stay at home, however, in connection with the removal of restrictive measures, in this case they will no longer be able to rely on benefits.
Tesla previously went to the opening of a plant in California, although local authorities in the person of the Alameda County government opposed such a move. Ilon Musk, who called the actions of California leaders to extend quarantine unconstitutional and threatened to transfer the main production of Tesla Model 3 cars to another state, received support from Donald Trump on the eve of this issue. “California should allow Mask to reopen its factory now. And you need to do this quickly, ”wrote the President of the United States on his Twitter.

At the same time, Musk promised that he would personally be at the California plant, and asked the authorities not to detain anyone other than him for violating anti-quarantine restrictions.

Earlier, the businessman said that he knew how to protect workers in a pandemic. According to him, in this regard, the experience of resuming activities at an enterprise in China was useful to him. However, Tesla employees in various anonymous interviews pointed out that in reality the management could not guarantee their safety. So, the masks offered to the workers turned out to be too small to cover their mouth and nose, and, according to them, no one took care of maintaining social distance in the shops.
