    Utilities in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania so far have asked for 803 workers from Virginia's largest power company. Dominion Virginia Power has already dispatched 21 specialized network linemen to help in New York.

    Or these:

    The utility has been asking for mutual aid from other utilities and has sent 200 linemen from its Ohio operations to the East Coast and 1,000 support personnel.

    So? What does this prove? The thread is about Alabama workers being turned away from New Jersey. Your articles do NOT prove the reasons why these particular workers were turned away. I don't know what you think I'm spinning simply because I ask for a link, but whatever.

    You can do it all day...true story. I dont know that you can make yourself look any sillier in the blind defense of OBVIOUS union stupidity...but you can certainly continue to reenforce it all day long.

    The fact is that volunteer workers were turned away because they didnt have a union card. People are struggling and suffering but its more important to make some sort of idiotic stand about unions over the needs of the people.

    Well, how does this story even make sense when the articles that were supplied stated that there are ALREADY other workers from other states present and doing work, or at least getting ready to. It says NOTHING about those workers being turned away. Why is that?

    Those articles kind of contradict this thread. Don't you think?

    Sorry, when you asked:
    Do you really think that if all the local community "resources" were used up, that they would have turned down volunteers?
    You inferred that they didn’t need the volunteers…I merely posted links to the local utilities requesting the volunteers…presumably because ‘all the local community “resources” HAD been used up…that is all.

    Perhaps because those other workers were union workers. And how does that change the fact that you are now looking for ways to defend it? The articles state VOLUNTEERS are working throughout the east coast because those states and towns care more about the people huddling in a corner of their house than some idiotic union thug policy.

    How so? That they asked for volunteers but only a 'certain' kind of volunteers...I'm sure the union popularity took a hit...at least from those who are without power...
