Volunteer crews who came to help restore power were allegedly told to leave because they are not union workers, according to a report.
Several utility crews from Alabama who arrived in New Jersey to help restore power following Hurricane Sandy were allegedly told to leave because they are not union workers, according to a Huntsville television station.
WAFF.com reports crews from Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity made their way to Seaside Heights, New Jersey this week to help get power back on for thousands of residents left in the dark. But the groups were told by crews in New Jersey that they cannot do any work because they are non-union employees, according to the report.
