American Red Cross Wins Court Injunction Against Striking Teamsters
Date:12/3/2009

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross won a court injunction today against the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 929 after its members illegally blocked vehicles from leaving the facility, interfering with blood shipments to local hospitals.

The Teamsters initiated a work stoppage against the American Red Cross Blood Services Penn-Jersey Region earlier today. The union represents approximately 110 Red Cross employees who pack, ship and deliver blood to area hospitals, assist at blood drives and help maintain our facility.

The Red Cross says union leaders are trying to disrupt the Red Cross Blood Services operations by going on strike.

The Red Cross says these tactics put patients at risk and required them to take legal action to stop this conduct. Doctors at area hospitals are now waiting for the safe delivery of Red Cross blood and blood products. Earlier today, the Red Cross says it had to inform union members that a two-year-old child's life depended on our blood delivery before they would allow a Red Cross vehicle to exit the yard to get the necessary blood products to the hospital.

At that point, the Red Cross felt it had no choice but to take the unusual step of going to court in order to seek relief from the union's disruptions.

The Red Cross collects more than 40% of the nation's blood supply and distributes blood and blood products to more than 100 hospitals in the Penn-Jersey region alone.

"While this is difficult and challenging for everyone involved, we are eager for a resolution that will allow the Red Cross and Teamsters to work together to fulfill our organization's mission of providing the American people with a blood supply that is sufficient, cost-effective,
