Elon Musk threatens to move Tesla HQ out of California over coronavirus restrictions

CNBC’s “Squawk Box” discuss the latest on Tesla including Model 3 sales and CEO Elon Musk’s latest comments about the coronavirus pandemic.

Tesla says it has started the process to resume operations and released a plan to bring its employees and contractors back to work, amid an escalating dispute with local health authorities in California over a shelter-in-place order that has kept the automaker’s Fremont factory idle during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our restart plan is the result of months of careful planning and preparation,” Tesla’s leadership said in a blog post titled “Getting Back to Work.” “It was modeled after the comprehensive return to work plan we established at our Shanghai Gigafactory, which has seen smooth and healthy operations for the last three months.”

Tesla workers are currently scheduled for shifts this week in Fremont to manufacture Model 3, S and X vehicles, according to company correspondence reviewed by CNBC. Those shifts were scheduled before CEO Elon Musk threatened Saturday to pull Tesla out of California in a dispute over the Fremont factory shutdown.

Tesla has filed a lawsuit against California’s Alameda County, asking a federal court to invalidate orders by local authorities that have prevented the automaker from resuming production.

Tesla argues in the company blog post that the Fremont factory falls under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s essential workforce guidelines and should resume production because it is critical national infrastructure.

“Contrary to the Governor’s recent guidance and support from the City of Fremont, Alameda County is insisting we should not resume operations,” Tesla’s leadership said in the blog post. “This is not for lack of trying or transparency since we have met with and collaborated on our restart plans with the Alameda County Health Care Services Agency.”

Alameda County authorities could not be immediately reached for comment.

Each Tesla facility has a back-to-work plan and a response team, which includes a physician, is establishing health and safety guidelines based on location and job-specific risk assessments, according to the company. In some cases, partitions and barriers have been added to minimize employee interactions.

Tesla’s re-opening plan outlines several safety guidelines and protocols for Tesla workers, including increasing cleaning and disinfection in work areas; enforcing social distancing; controlling access to facilities and imposing temperature checks at some locations.

“We are taking the time we need to get our personnel properly trained before they begin work and all employees must complete an online video training before returning to work at any Tesla facility,” the company said.

The company will also adjust work shifts to control the number of people in one work space and cut shuttle occupancy in half. The company says it will provide personal protective equipment to workers and implement touchless services for people who have direct contact with customers.

Tesla workers who can work from home will continue to do so but those needed for essential operations in the production facilities will come back to work gradually.

  • 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎👍Elon is about “profit margins”, they should of thought (Alameda libtard county) about “poking the big bear” before inconveniencing their operations? Now, after annoying Elon’s operations, they want to kiss his butt? Lol. Leave the libtard nation Elon!!! California will only take away from Tesla. The gloating dastardly “Superfluous monetary level people” can ship the Tesla’s overthere or just get them at the dealerships. California is an embarrassment to to world and the rest of the nation and only wants Tesla there as a boast and a “feather in their caps” to make n cause their egos and pride to stay inflated! Leave Elon! Don’t let them dissuade you! ☝️😎

  • 49ers left, Tesla and my neighbors are selling their houses ha, ha! CA is becoming a commie state. Our Governor Newsom and Pelosi would rather eat ice cream then give it to illegals and homeless people. There will be tons of them after this hysteria.

  • Our Governor shut down all these businesses. So now we force yes force more people to shop fewer places having more people touch more objects. One person per family is allowed in a store so the husband goes in first with one cart. . I have to buy shoes and he can’t try them on for me so I have to go in separately… plus other things are needed on my list. So now we’re using 2 carts and standing in line twice… which if you do the math you are possibly affecting more people according to government standards. STOP the stupidity. If you’re at risk stay home. The government should not get the right to say who can feed their family and who cannot. Now it’s time for me to buy one of your vehicles Elon. Don’t back down.

  • Elon is just another cold, greedy CEO who is only upset that he has less ducats to rub together and swim through (Scrooge McDuck?). His threats are empty — they are akin to a child sitting down, crossing their arms, and refusing to move because they didn't get the ice cream cone they wanted. The cost of moving his facility would be crippling and he knows it. Maybe putting the drugs down would be a good start…
