Philadelphia Red Cross Blood Workers Strike to Protect Donor and Blood Safety
Date:12/3/2009

to the Red Cross on October 30, 2009.

Former Red Cross executives admit that ARC's turnover "system wide is about 30% per year," and that this was an area management had identified for improvement. The greatest turnover at the Red Cross is in blood collection, a job that is difficult to fill because the work is unpleasant.

"For our members transporting blood is more than just doing a job. It's about providing the country with the safest and most reliable blood supply possible," Bryan said. "We are taking a stand for donors, blood recipients, and Red Cross blood drive workers across the country. Its time for the Red Cross to get serious about safety issues and respecting its employees."
