#1 The unions are a criminal pestilence upon the nation. RICO from the ground up. America needs to "clean house" in big way.

#3 Distressing story, but is it true? It is just based on one guy's statement, with no verification. Several similar stories have come out, some false, some at least partly true.

#6 The problem is they are too direct to live in an alternating universe.

#7 Glenmore, it would not surprise me that independent truckers and utility workers were turned away in NYC when I think of the union behavior in Wisconsin; those people were thugs. I doubt the people who needed help would turn down the help.

#8 New Yorkers - apparently you don't need any help. Your Con Ed Union workers said so

#9 JohnQC, it would not surprise me if the story was true; it would not surprise me if it was 'embellished'; it does not surprise me that the media did not confirm it. At this point I trust no one, I just distrust some more than others.

#11 In a two-page Oct. 29 contract, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) local 1049 demanded union dues, pay hikes and benefit contributions from Florida electric utilities before its workers would be permitted to help reconnect power to Long Island communities. The demand came as Hurricane Sandy was bearing down on the Northeastern United States, stranding tens of millions without electricity.

The “Letter of Assent,” which The Daily Caller obtained from the Florida Municipal Electric Association, demanded 11 separate financial commitments from municipal power companies and electrical cooperatives in the Sunshine State. The agreement, for any utility that decided to sign it, would have been in force from Oct. 29 to Nov. 29.

Barry Moline, the association’s executive director, told TheDC that by Nov. 1 the union, based in the central Long Island town of Hauppauge, had relented and stopped insisting that nonunion crews pay dues and other union fees.
