New Jersey Turns Away Alabama Non-Union Utility Crews from Sandy Relief

Obviously, New Jersey is not a right to work, or even right to help out, state.
Crews 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.
The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
Understandably, Moore said they’re frustrated being told “thanks, but no thanks.”
