I am shock about this story, and upset too.

question: an IBEW stooge is quoted as saying that CL&P went from having one lineman per 2000 customers to 1 in 9000, and that there are 1.2 million customers in the state. This, then, equals almost 134 linemen in the state.

The author then says CL&P has 397 linemen in the state. WTF?

I can better accept the 397 number from an author that has checked their facts before publishing, rather than an ex-employee with an axe to grind.

The other union thug swearing in the article could have been done-without too.
