SEASIDE HEIGHTS, New Jersey – The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews learned they could not help out in New Jersey unless they affiliated with a union.

Crews from Decatur Utilities 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 general manager of Decatur Utilities, Ray Hardin said they were presented documents from the International Brotherhood of Electric Workers at a staging area in Virginia. The documents stated they had to affiliate with a union to work, which the crews could not agree to.

The crews were originally called to Seaside Heights, but they never made it to New Jersey. They attempted to look for work in other areas but made the decision night to return home.

Moore said they’re frustrated being told “thanks, but no thanks.”  Full Article

    Storm recovery is big money. Of course the unions are going to try to dominate. Union bosses gotta get paid somehow.
