BRICK – Regarding earlier reports of non-union utility workers from out of state encountering problems in New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie said this afternoon that the state utilities said they welcome any kind of labor – union or not – as the state rebuilds from the hurricane.
Christie said that workers from Alabama received “bad information” and as a result didn’t come up to New Jersey, but he emphasized that all workers are welcome as the state works to restore power.
An Alabama company, Decatur Utilities, said it sent a crew to work in Seaside Heights, but held them in Virginia while it clarified paperwork the company understood to be a requirement that its workers join IBEW before aiding crew here.
