National Bargaining Update: Red Cross

Blood services workers at the American Red Cross (ARC) have been mobilizing for months for a fair contract. Recently, the coalition of unions representing workers at ARC released a series of digital advertisements to build public support and put pressure on management to reach an agreement. The workers are preparing to take further action if management continues to fail to meet their demands on healthcare benefits, adequate staffing, safe working conditions, and other issues currently on the bargaining table. CWA represents hundreds of mobile and fixed site blood collection staff and laboratory technicians in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New York, who are responsible for drawing blood from patients and donors, coordinating donor drives, diagnostic blood manufacturing, and more.
