Union Thug Update: IBEW Blocked Transformers from Being Delivered to NJ

Share

When they claim to be trying to help people recovering from a natural disaster, why did the IBEW keep important supplies, like  electrical transformers, from entering New Jersey?  Wyblog has the story…

For the second time since Huricane Sandy their unionista thugs put solidarity above customer service.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it seems to be pretty clear that residents of New York City and the surrounding areas could use all the help they can get.

However, a Davisburg man said some people in the area are more interested in “protecting their turf” than in distributing those supplies to the masses.

Mike James, an independent trucker, said he and three other truckers were told to haul a load of transformers to the city to replace equipment anticipated to be lost in the storm.

James, two men from Holly and a Flint man arrived in the city Tuesday night and slept in their trucks before attempting to deliver the 144 transformers to emergency workers.

When they arrived Wednesday, they were turned away by Con Edison employees because they were not union workers.

Mind you, without transformers, the power can’t be turned back on.  I wonder how many people will have to go longer without electricity, all in the name of a labor union that people are forced to join?

  • Some call me Tim?

    I was an IBEW member in the late 60′s and early 70′s. When the economic downturn of the mid 70′s hit the union gave back $5 an hour to the contractors, thus there was less money and almost NO work to be had. After being told at the hall that I couldn’t look for work in a non-union shop, I told the local B.A to kiss my a$$ and dropped out of the union.
    No one, and I mean NO ONE is going to tell me who I can or can’t work for….EVER!
