It was previously reported that unionized Red Cross workers in Michigan were going on strike because they wanted better benefits than those offered to non-union employees. Now they are striking, and according to WLNS, some blood donation drives have had to shut down.
The strike, organized by two unions, has forced the organization to reschedule several drives or even cancel them. But some are still on.
I wonder how this will effect people who need blood transfusions. I’m sure it won’t help.
