Let's hope that the PA Red Cross people are treated with more respect that the utility workers from Huntsville, AL, were treated in New Jersey--

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY (WAFF) -
The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.

Utility crews volunteered with Sandy recovery. See photos.

Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity 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.

Wonder how many NJ residents are sitting in the dark tonight--that's to the Union Label?
