There’s more: Georgia power crew turned away from Sandy-stricken New York for refusing to join union

And the unions have lost the South.  The Georgia workers walked away...
“We’re not a large utility, so we were only able to send up two or three crews,” Glenn Cunningham, a business continuity coordinator with Diverse Power in LaGrange, Georgia, said in a phone interview.

“They worked in Maryland, and they went up to New York, and when they got up there it was, ‘out come the union papers.’” “And our guys were like, ‘Hey, we’re not joining nothing. We came up to help, but if you don’t want it, that’s fine.’ So they turned around and drove all the way back here to Georgia.”
The unions should lose the northern corridor as well.
