Sec. of Economy assures Tesla Giga Mexico remains unaffected by layoffs

The State Secretary of Economy of Nuevo León has assured that Tesla’s global staff reduction will not impact the construction of Giga Mexico. Economy Secretary Iván Rivas Rodríguez confirmed that work on Tesla Giga Mexico is still progressing and the company’s investment in the municipality of Santa Catarina remains on track. “Everything continues as planned, I could tell you that the plant is going,” Rodríguez said. Tesla’s decision to reduce staff globally was explained as a response to the company’s rapid growth, which led to duplication of roles and job functions in certain areas.

The company emphasized the importance of implementing cost reductions and increasing productivity to prepare for its next phase of growth. Meanwhile, reports from China indicated that Tesla sales associates were informed of redundant roles, and Giga Berlin countered local media claims that Tesla planned to cut 3,000 jobs. The process of laying off workers in Germany differs as Tesla is required to navigate through the works council, unions, and the Frankfurt (Oder) employment agency.
