The Daily Journal, 10/7/10

Yet another group is chiming in on the possible development of the Cargill Saltworks site. The International Longshore & Warehouse Union, Local 10 who represents several employees at the Port of Redwood City approved a resolution opposing the plan. The American Federal of Teachers Local 1493 also opposes development and ups the ante with a resolution supporting full restoration of the salt ponds and inclusion in the Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge.

After being approached by union members in Redwood City, the American Federation of Teachers Local 1493 Executive Committee, representing all faculty in the San Mateo Community College District, unanimously approved the adoption of a resolution expressing opposition to the saltworks development proposal and support for restoration of historic Bay tidal marsh. Cargill Saltworks wants to build 12,000 housing units on the 400-acre property in Redwood City.
