The Union Coalition representing 4,500 workers at the American Red Cross reached a national tentative agreement late in the evening on August 30th, 2018. The Coalition successfully blocked proposed takeaways and made some important national gains.
The Union Coalition’s Bargaining Team has now received the Red Cross’s response to the comprehensive economic counter proposal made at our last national bargaining session (June 19-21), and it isn’t good. The Union Coalition remains UNITED!
The National Union Coalition met for the last scheduled national session with the Red Cross. The Union Coalition made progress on issues that affect our day-to-day lives, but management remains far from the union on where money should be invested.
