More unions oppose Cargill development

Daily Journal, 6/17/11

Two more unions have joined the list of groups opposed to the proposed development of the Cargill Saltworks site in Redwood City, according to the Bay preservation group battling the possibility.

The Sailors Union of the Pacific and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 6 are the latest unions, joining the Teamsters Joint Council No. 7, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 and the American Federation of Teachers Local 1493, according to Save the Bay.

All oppose the Cargill proposal by developer DMB Association to build up to 12,000 residential units on the salt ponds which are also near the Port of Redwood City.

“Protecting our vital ports, by following common-sense zoning and land-use policies that keep housing away from heavy industry is a critical concern of our members,” said Gunnar Lundeberg, president of the Sales Union of the Pacific, in a prepared statement.

The Cargill Saltworks plan calls for 50 percent of the 1,436-acre site to be preserved for permanent open space, public recreation and tidal marsh restoration and the remaining half be developed into housing, schools, parks, retail areas and transit facilities. Save the Bay, however, wants all the land to be converted to tidal marshlands.
