Yet another reason I loathe unions wherever they exist. Crews from Alabama utilities turned away in NJ because they're non union. Let 'em go without power for weeks on end. The people in the region deserve what they get out of this stupidity.

The above story should have started with Once Upon A Time..
I know that you guys have been drinking from the same scum pond that Ole Mitty is drinking from and would love to think that the above story is the truth..But those that do not drink from that same pond know the truth..Although i am sure all the know it alls will think otherwise..For the light shines on them!!

Re-read the story again.

What you posted says it WAS TRUE,

What it says is "the information given to the Alabama workers over the phone was not true". So someone LIED to the Alabama workers. Sounds like a uniomn member.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie addressed the Alabama utility controversy during his afternoon press conference on Friday.

In short, he says the Alabama workers were on their way to New Jersey and called someone (it’s unknown who) while in Virginia. That’s when they were told they couldn’t help if they were non-union. Christie says they were given “bad information,” and such a requirement does not exist. He also said he’s talked with all the power companies involved and assured the public that if such a requirement was in place, he would exercise his power as governor to override it.

Let me get this straight liBeRals, this thread isn't true and Benghazi was because of an anti-muzzy youtube video.

Got it.

What a load of B.S. Even slaves had lunch and water breaks. Your YOONyun has succeeded with the propaganda they have been feeding you.

I'm also in a union and if we didn't have It we would be working for minimum wage.
I have worked union as well as non union and a union only keeps the hiring,firing,wages and overall general treatment of employees fair.



Bull! You would be working for a wage that rewards you for your skills and what you can offer your employer or, if you are self-employed, the value you offer in the product or service you produce and provide.

As for fair, that is a weather condition.

Let's see...A non-union company from Alabama don't want their workers to join a union while out of state on a job. There is such a thing as temp membership in some places FWIW. All one has to do is pay dues while on that job then withdraw when the job is over. My guess they are afraid those workers would like working under union rules and working conditions and return to Alabama and want to keep those rules and working conditions once back home. So they recall their workers or threaten dismissal if they do join.

I have worked both union and non-union over the years and I am currently working union as a Teamster.I have seen people fired in a non union shop just because someone did not like somebody..that is BS. I have seen people hired in and make more money than someone who is equally skilled because he is dating the owners daughter..more BS. It is a historical fact that the wages are driven down in right to work states. Who does this benefit? The employers only is who.How can you argue against a better life and better wages,health care,benefits, and working conditions? Excuse me if I do not understand your logic on this...please explain.....

I'm pretty sure the Dept. of Labor handles that.... not the union.

You don't know it but you just posted what is WRONG with unions.

They went up there for a Emergency Disaster !!!! They went up there to HELP OUT. But by what YOU posted the unions said NO, they HAVE to join the union to help them out.

It was the same exact way when the Trade Towers went down..Only Union workers were allowed on site..And will be more then willing to bet the next one will be Union only also..Guess that is why the Unions are hated so much.. They know what Brotherhood is about and will stand together..Maybe a few could learn a lesson from them!
