    Re: Union Thuggary at it's Finest

    I'm going to guess there is a contract that prohibits non-union workers that could then raise economic grievance liabilities - meaning it IS the union that would not agree to a crisis-waiver. So a BIG FU! to that specific local union office is correct.

    And so much for Obama "waiving red tape," as he could merely sign an emergency executive order authorizing the Labor Relations Board to grant and enforce a time-limited crisis-waiver that superceded the labor contract. Since he didn't, it IS Obama's fault.

    What they should be doing is getting help to those who need it first and foremost. The fact that they would delay that help for even a couple of seconds because of "union considerations" is deplorable given the circumstances.

    Does hiring unemployed utility linemen in NJ (if there are any) sound plausable? If there are none does hiring unemployed electricians, training them to be linemen (especially the safety training) sound expeditious? Do you think those who are without power are willing to wait for this?...pitiful

    no no and no...put all the New Jerseyans out of work to work union or not then hire outside the state for any OTHER manpower you need...not too hard.

    These people came to help, not look for jobs. They are "volunteers".
