Fri Dec 11 2009 (Updated 12/12/09)Worker Safety Activists Tell Tesla: Don't Build on Toxic Dump Site in Downey
Fri Dec 11 2009 (Updated 12/12/09)Tesla "Not Rushing Into Anything" as They Decide on Venue for Electric Car Plant
Worker safety activists say that toxic site property developers are developing long time military and commercial radioactive toxic dumps without properly cleaning them up and that one of the most deadly is in Downey, California. On December 10th members of the Coalition for Workers Memorial Day visited Tesla's world headquarters in San Carlos to report on the continuing contamination and dangerous working conditions at the Downey site. They asked that Tesla not choose that site for their new plant to build their environment-friendly cars.
Steve Basile, who faces life threatening illness after working as a propmaker for Downey Studios, told Tesla's VP of Communications Ricardo Reyes, "Making electric cars, that will help the environment. You are doing the right thing." He said he made the trip to the Bay Area to speak out for other workers who will come after him, and asked that Tesla not risk exposing their employees to the same fate he has suffered. Mr. Reyes assured the visiting activists that Tesla "wants to make an informed decision as we grow the company" and will not rush to a decision on a location for an auto assembly plant.
