Union members shout ‘Scabs!’ and ‘Scumbags!’ at utility crews in New York



On his nationally syndicated talk radio program Friday, Sean Hannity played audio of what he said were union workers in New York City yelling “Scabs!” and “Scumbags!” at nonunion utility workers who came to the city to help reconnect power lines after Hurricane Sandy.

After the superstorm hit the northeastern U.S. Monday and Tuesday, the International Brotherhod of Electrical Workers reportedly demanding membership agreements from volunteer electric crews before allowing them to help restore power to millions of storm-crippled consumers in New York and New Jersey. (RELATED: Georgia power crew turned away from Sandy-stricken New York for refusing to join union)

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pledged Friday that he wouldn’t permit union interference with power restoration, but the governments of New York state and New York City have been silent on the matter. (RELATED: Christie threatens “Disaster Control Act” order to guarantee nonunion utility workers can help restore NJ power)

The audio Hannity played Friday featured what he said were “union thugs” berating utility workers from Alabama.

“That’s who you hurt, scumbags! That’s who you f-cking hurt! Scumbags!” a loud voice on the audio recording is heard shouting. ”F-ck all of you f-cking [unintelligible]! That’s who you hurt! You’re taking it from our families! Good jobs!”

“Go back where you came from! Look at her face! Scab! Look at her face, scab! That’s who you’re hurting, scab! You feel good tonight? Go home, you bunch of scabs! That’s who you’re hurting! Taking our jobs! That’s who you’re hurting, scabs! You’re hurting families!”

Hannity was outraged. “These are old people. They need heat. … Utility workers from Alabama, they get turned around,” he said. (RELATED: Ala. utility, Fla. crewman blame electricians’ union for interfering with Hurricane Sandy relief)

“They get called scabs and scumbags by union thugs.”

“Who’s in charge here?” Hannity asked, after airing the audio clip. “Who is in charge that people from Alabama — utility workers that came up here to help — they get called ‘scabs’ and ‘scumbags’ and they’re turned back. Who’s in charge of this?”

    Like the obamanation they are out for them selves , not the country as a whole.Only mememememe And the idiots should know better to call them scabs, because only a union worker that crosses a picket line can be called a scab.

    I think you're only taking a minority of people to bash all union employees.

    It's the mindset of Unions. I can see their anger if someone was trying to take their jobs, however, these guys gave up their time and energy, left their families to HELP. And this idiots are cussing them out and calling them names. I would turn around and leave them in the dark.

    Well you can't really blame them for having a strong distaste for scabs. Scabs cheapen the labor union employees do but there is a time and place for it. In the middle of a disaster area is neither the place nor time to complain about people cheapening your job.

    These guys have left their families and homes to give help to those in need. There are no jobs on the line.

    Which is why it is neither the time nor the place to complain about scabs. If you reread what I said in my first response to you you would see I already said that.

    But not those who need help, ignore the union.

    As an ex UAW member that knows the mentality of the THUGS in the Union, I would turn around and go back to my home. I would never put up with the crap of others when I was only trying to help their own neighbors.
  • Ken zbacku 2012/11/04 23:33:28

    You would only hurt those in need then.

    Then the unions should speak up and condemn the actions.

    Don't they always but what power do the unions have to fend off the anti-union sentiment.
