Tesla Gigafactory New York Receives Extension for Employment Targets

Written by Simon Alvarez, Teslarati


...a one-year deferral of our obligation to be compliant with our applicable targets under such agreement on April 30, 2020, which was memorialized in an amendment to our agreement with the SUNY Foundation in July 2020," Tesla noted. 


"In April 2021, we were granted an additional deferral through Dec. 31, 2021 subject only to memorialization in writing by us and the SUNY Foundation, as our operations at Gigafactory New York have not yet fully ramped due to a number of factors related to the pandemic." 


While the extension provides Tesla with some more runway to ensure Giga New York is staffed optimally by the end of the year, it does not shorten the company’s 10-year job commitment for the facility. Instead, the extension pushes out the job creation schedule included in its agreement with the state, as per a report from The Buffalo News. Tesla has asked for an extension on this as well. 


Tesla has so far not disclosed the exact number of people currently working at Giga New York, though the company is expected to file a report with the state by the end of May. This report should provide details of Giga New York’s employment levels as of April 30.
