National Contract Has Been Ratified

October 6, 2015

Members of eight national unions representing 4,000 ARC employees have voted overwhelmingly to ratify a national agreement with the Red Cross. This is the first time that ARC union members have come together to achieve a contract that builds power to improve our jobs, healthcare, wages, and working conditions. This contract is an historic victory for us as ARC workers and union members.

Local 5103 Members Ratify National Tentative Agreement

August 24, 2015

Last night, Local 5103 members voted overwhelmingly to ratify a National Tentative Agreement that was negotiated between the National ARC Biomedical Services Division and eight labor unions representing ARC healthcare workers across the country. The other unions in the ARC Union Coalition, which represents 4,000 employees in 20 states, will be holding ratification meetings in the coming weeks. If enough unions vote to ratify the contract, the National Agreement will go into effect for all unions who vote to accept it.
