Politics Before People–
Non-union utility workers from Alabama were called up to help out in New Jersey but when they reached the state they were denied entry.
WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

WAFF reported:

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.

  1. Pathetic.

  2. I hope they fire the union people who turned them away. Idiots. So much for clearing the red tape there Barry the union thug

  3. Unions hate competition since they know they’ll be showed up.

  4. This sounds like a scene from out of the Sopranos. The mob is very protective of their turf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45uLNBYwh3I

  5. “No Red Tape” Obama screws the folks in N.J. —
    That didn’t take long, did it?

  6. Now we know why Christie was so bi-partisan – Obama played the union card – if Christie wants NJ cleaned up then he had to play nice for Obama – otherwise Obama supporting unions would give less than best effort.

  7. I can see this is going to cost BIG money and take a long time, because the clean-up will go on and on.

    Because it is always about them and how they see the world, and there is nothing liberal about Progressives.

    They want to tell us what to eat and drink; what to read; what is news; how many children to have; and how long we should live before they pull the plug.

    Mostly, they want us to pay tax upon tax, and feed the insatiable appetite of their beast.

    They are fascists.

  8. This is just evil. People are suffering and these union goons still want to play politics. I have nothing good to say about these people. May they all rot in the lowest (bleeping) hell!

  9. …they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees.

    Not a problem.

    Next time, don’t bother. If the Jersey crews want to be picky about who gives them a hand, then let them take care of their own problems.

  10. Barry’s Boyz.

  11. So Chris Christie will “fight” the teacher’s union but not the utility worker’s union?
    Was this what he and B.O. discussed yesterday?
    A “real” Governor would let any and all assistance enter the state to help “his” people.

  12. [But meteorologists add that it's six days out, so that's rather early to get too worried. The forecast could change before it hits late next week. The National Weather Service's forecast center in College Park, Md., which watches winter storms, put out a long-range notice Thursday saying a nor'easter was possible for mid-Atlantic and New England states by Election Day through next Thursday.] and aren’t these people running out of gas? the union shooting itself in the foot….if i were a resident i might not be so ammendable to help being turned away because of a company’s union [or lack of] status. i went through this last year and i wouldn’t voluntarily sit out another day in the dark and cold so some union hacks could exercise their power. while a lot can change with a new storm possibility…………….

  13. the hell with ‘em,

    to borrow from Golda Meir, “if they love their unions more than they help their own folks, then they’ll always have their own problems”

    let ‘em sink in their own filth

  14. [City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has chosen to divert critical food supplies and power generators from desperate residents of Staten Island to Sunday's New York City Marathon. Gothamist reports:]

  15. Chris Christie and Bloomberg have made it VERY clear exactly where there concerns lie. Yesterday they were both asking Obama for 100% coverage of their storm damage instead of the usual 75% . . . meanwhile, other states also have storm damage and there is only about $2 billion available for this.

    People in NYC dumpster diving so that Bloomberg can put on his show – never mind all the diversion of police and rescue personnel that should be tending to victims of the storm!

    NJ sending home power workers sent to help because they are “non-union”!

    I hope these people remember which party belongs to the unions when they get to the ballot box.

  16. Absolute stupidity, FU New Jersey. You deserve the union b.s.
