Tesla told employees that the plant had been allowed to resume operations after Elon Musk threatened to relocate the company’s headquarters and future projects after California refused to reopen, Bloomberg reported. In an email to employees, the company wrote that temporary health officials in Alameda County had approved work plans and safety measures at the Fremont plant, according to bloomberg sin.
In an email, Laurie Shelby, Tesla’s director of environment, health and safety, told employees that after an inspection by local officials, “we have received local support to resume full production of the plant from next week.” “
Officials from Tesla and Alameda County immediately responded to requests for comment during off-hours.
This month, Tesla took Alameda County to court after the county said the company did not live up to the standard. In Musk’s words, it was the “last straw” that prompted him to threaten to move the plant to Nevada or Texas.
