Nonunion Ala. crews turned
away from Sandy recovery

WAFF-TV [Huntsville, AL], by Mark Thornhill

Seaside Heights, New Jersey - The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey. Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.(Snip) The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already

Ah, Jersey. I can smell the corruption from here.

The union just built a new gun "It doesn't work and you can't fire it"

I seriously doubt the people without power could care less if a nonunion worker is helping to restore their electricity.

After 9-11, volunteers from La. went up to cook gumbo, tailgating style, for the workers digging for bodies at the twin towers. After a few days, they were told that since they didn't have permits, they couldn't help. They were GIVING away food purchased with money donated by the citizens of La. Oh, and they were hurting the local merchants. Yep...not fair to give food to the 1st. responders and other volunteers. Make'm pay. Stupid is stupid.

I wonder if the tornado victims in Tuscaloosa turned down help from non-union crews who were gracious enough to come help? Somehow I doubt it.

Hopefully Christie will publicly lambaste the people responsible for putting their unions before the victims needs.

Thanks, though... for making the clearest argument EVER for getting rid of unions.

I live near Houston and have been without power for days because of hurricanes and it makes everything more difficult. No gas, no ice, no water, no fridge, no air conditioning, roads blocked by down trees etc. If any utility had been turned away from helping us get power for any reason I would have been livid. Fortunately I live in Texas and we don't support this kind of union workers only crap!

It's unions like these that have made cesspools of great American cities. They don't care about the citizens/taxpayers their city & county bosses are sworn to serve. They are like snarling dogs that protect a maggot-infested piece of meat for fear it will all go away. Such ignorance; such pettiness that the unions would endanger the population by turning down the good will of those who have made personal sacrifices to come and help. When the power is out, I don't ask the lineman for his union card.

What good does it do for the president to declare a ''State of Emergency'' in New Jersey if vital help can be turned away due to vital workers' lack of union credentials?

Why isn't the president enforcing his emergency declaration by waiving union requirements?

Why haven't sufficient gasoline supplies arrived in New Jersey as promised by the president?

Why, if the easily enraged Governor of New Jersey truly cares about the people of his state, hasn't he already died of apoplexy at the indignities Washington and the unions have been visiting upon his constituents?

Absolutely sickening and outrageous and, please, a 'Must Read'.

From President Smarty-Pants-on-Fire:
“America is with you; we are standing behind you; and we are going to do everything we can to get you back on your feet.”
“No bureaucracy. No red tape,”
“The great thing about America is when we go through tough times like this, we all pull together. We look out for our friends. We look out for our neighbors. And we set aside whatever issues we may have otherwise to make sure that we respond appropriately and with swiftness.”

But, after even swifter consultation with my Union-Head advisors, let me add that non-union volunteer utility workers like those from Alabama and Virginia should just stay home.

This reminds me of BP oil spill when Obozo wouldn't let the oil slick cleaning ships in because of the unions and the oil contined to get closer and closer to shore, but it didn't matter to the unions nor to Obozo.

The electric workers in NY/NJ are going to cleanup on overtime,even more so since the feds are picking up the tab. They don't want no outsiders cutting in on their overtime which could go on for weeks.Maybe even triple pay for working Sundays.

Some things never change. But for NYC, the State of New York votes conservative often enough that it would be at least a "toss up" state. Al Qaeda hijacks jets to fly into the WTC Towers, and NYC's population votes liberal and criticized Dubya after his administration rescued, and repaired them. Now they want the federal government to bear all the costs of repairing their city's hurricane damage--to be paid at union wages, with union graft, inefficiency, and kickbacks to the DNC.

On April 27, 2011, 55 tornadoes hit the state of Alabama. Some small towns were totally devastated. My town was hit by two EF-4 tornadoes and 5 people died.

I worked at the EMA center organized by the people of our town. We turned the rec center into EMA central. We had volunteers who poured in from our town and all parts of the south and mid-west. I don't remember any from the north but don't quote me on that because there may have been.

It took the Red Cross and Federal EMA well over a week to finally get here. By that time we were fully established. Our center fed people 3 meals a day. It was staffed totally by volunteers from our town. Displaced people slept on the floor of the gym for weeks. Churches in the area fed and housed people and work crews. We had some churches from other states send 18 wheelers full of food, water and diapers and other supplies. We were always so excited to see these 18 wheelers arrive. We needed all the food and supplies we could get. Power crews came in from all around.

While every volunteer was a hero to our town I was so impressed by the churches from other areas who sent buses of volunteers and many brought heavy equipment which was needed to clear trees, etc. and help repair homes. Many of these people came back again and again for weeks.

People in my area are not rich, but they are very giving and they are willing to help someone in trouble. I guess that's why I am so mad about this article. I know people in my town who work in these skill areas and I know what kind of people they are. I also know what it feels like to be a town in need of help.

NJ has not only missed out on the chance to have our crews help repair the damage, it has missed out on an opportunity to make some new friends and learn more about us.

It is truly their loss.

#21, As for unions getting triple time for Sundays, same goes for Veteran's Day, they will either get triple time or triple time and a half (3.5). Same goes for Thanksgiving and there will still be work to do by then. Hopefully those Alabama crews were sent somewhere else along Sandy's path. I am sure the people on Staten Island would love to have their help.

I lived on the Miss gulf coast during Katrina and can tell you no help of any kind was turned away. On Tues morning I told my husband that this would happen. When people start to rebuild they will find out just what their lib demands will cost them. Just like the rebuilding of Ground Zero, we will still be hearing about this for the next 20 years.

Ah yes -- unions protecting workers from being oppressed by businesses. In this context, unions are big (monkey-) business.

I am glad to report Sean Hannity has picked up this story big time on his Friday afternoon radio show. As far as I can tell no one else has picked up the story so far. The silence from Governor Christie is deafening. Sean keeps asking "Just who is in charge here?" Sean played a tape of Union Goons calling the Alabama power utility workers who came to help names like "scabs" and "job takers". Sickening to listen to. There are still hundreds of thousands of people without power in New Jersey and a winter storm is forecast for next week. So where is Gov Christie on this disgraceful news?

The Alabama crew went up there to HELP those union thugs restore power. When Andrew hit Louisiana in the area where I live I was struck, heartened by the electric crews coming in from out of state. It was beautiful and welcomed. Are the residents of NJ aware of what happened? Is KA Gov Christie po'd as he should be? We have a great power company here and luckily we live on the same "line" as 2 hospitals so we generally get our power fairly fast. I don't know what I think of the residents of NJ. They will have to step up and help themselves and neighbors. Don't whine and cry. Do something constructive. Sigh!

The site filter wouldn't allow me to submit what those union goons called the Southerners who drove hundreds of miles to help fellow countrymen in need.

Those Southerners showed themselves for who they are and the Northern union members claiming to speak for the whole community showed themselves.

In the end, the goons did more to themselves than anyone else, and I hope the tapes are replayed for years to come.

Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
