Non-Union Electric Crew Turned Away From Sandy Recovery

Wasn’t just yesterday that Obama gave a speech in which he said that “Americans are coming together” during the Sandy cleanup during a stump speech? How’s that working out? (via American Perspective)

(WAFF) 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.

One would think Seaside, which was hit terribly bad, would take any help they could get. Alas, no.
