Nonunion Ala. crews turned away from Sandy recovery


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.

The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already headed back home.

Understandably, Moore said they're frustrated being told "thanks, but no thanks."

At least Huntsville has now found someone who wants their help.

Doesn't surprise me

Same public unions which told a city in Kali they didn't want the Boy Scouts picking up litter

I've heard the stories about the IBEW or electrical workers union in New Jersey. I've heard stories from a convention center in Philadelphia that you can't even plug in cat5 computer cable into a jack because it's considered a union job.

This is obsurd. I think these are rogue union members acting like thugs. I can't imagine the local union sanctioning this behavior. If nothing else they should consider it an oppurtunity to inform and sign up more members.

Those workers are dangerous. Drinking a twelve pack every night is not a stable emplee to work around. Construction preaches safety first. Test for drugs and alcohol. Get rid of the scum!!!
