    Re: Union Thuggary at it's Finest

    So, the only account of anyone being turned away from working in NJ is that a 6 man crew was approached "by crews in New Jersey" while they sat in a staging area in VIRGINIA and told they couldn't work in New Jersey without affiliating with IBEW?

    Does anyone really think agents of New Jersey Electrical unions (or as it is reported, actual service crews from NJ) traveled to Virginia to intercept inbound Southern non-union electrical workers?

    "A six man crew 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."

    Again, told by crews "in New Jersey" while they sat in a staging area IN VIRGINA???????????

    "The general manager of Decatur Utilities, Ray Hardin told Fox Business 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.

    Hardin said the crews were not turned away but were made to believe that affiliating with the union was a requirement to work.

    "It was and remains our understanding that agreeing to those requirements was a condition of being allowed to work in those areas," said Hardin.

    As they waited for confirmation on the documents, crews received word that Seaside Heights had received the assistance they needed from other sources.

    At this stage, it is not clear who is alleged to have turned the crew away and the company that employs the affected workers has denied the claim.

    IBEW local leaders in New Jersey have reiterated what has been the long standing record of our union –in times of crisis all help is welcome and we pull together with everyone to meet the needs of the public. We have communicated this to the office of New Jersey Governor Christie as well,
    " said IBEW President Ed Hill."

    Doesn't pass the smell test to me.

    And it sure doesn't say anyone from Seaside Heights made union affiliation a prerequisite for working in that town . . .

    Sounds to me some Obamabot agent provocateurs were busy in Virgina and their ploy with a half-dozen half-wits was a raging success!

    I didn't say it was a conspiracy, just that the abolition of unions would make the Daily Caller (and the OP) jump with joy. In other words, any fact that they have, whether or not they've gone and checked for truthfulness is going to be jumped on. My use of the word "scab" may have been ill-advised, as it has put the wrong idea in people's heads.

    Some unions need to be abolished, especially in govt. Even FDR stated that govt unions were wrong.

    Have we established that the entire storm in a teacup thing was a rightwing lie yet?
