New Jersey Union Workers Turn Away Ala. Help

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, utility crews from several parts of the country, including here in the South, mobilized to help out in whatever way they could.  Hundreds of vehicles in convoys headed towards the storm-ravaged areas to help restore power as soon as possible so that people affected by the storm could start to put the pieces of their lives back together.  For some, it was only to be turned away.

According to a report by The Daily Caller, some crews from Alabama were turned told Huntsville’s WAFF that local crews turned them away from a New Jersey town, Seaside Heights, because they didn’t have union cards.

The report goes on to say that some of the areas in New Jersey may be without power for another 7 to 10 days:  you would think that the utility company would take any help offered, right?  I have some more research to do on this subject, by my preliminary reaction is “Help is help; take it and sort out the details later”.  I find it difficult to believe that an organization will allow the people that it serves to go without utilities, seemingly because of a selfishness.

Am I wrong on this call?  Read the story for yourself and tell me what you think!
