Hey, They Stay Bought: NJ Senate Votes To Exclude Non-Union Construction Workers for Hurricane Sandy Work
15th January 2013
A bill that was authored by an Ironworkers’ union organizer to expand union-only Project Labor Agreements–to include Hurricane Sandy cleanup and reconstruction–passed the New Jersey Senate on Monday along party lines 23-13.
The Ironworkers’ union organizer who drafted the pro-union bill, Steven Sweeney, also happens to be the president of the New Jersey Senate and recently accused New Jersey Governor Chris Christie of “praying” for Hurricane Sandy to hit New Jersey.
As Uncle Rahm says, never let a crisis go to waste.
