Red Cross Workers On Strike
State Correction Officer James Zuccalo (standing, 4th from right)presents a contribution to the striker solidarity fund on behalf of AFSCME Local 391.
"I'm not out here just to protect my benefits. I'm here with my family for respect," said Local 3145's Tashonda Thompson, a Red Cross phlebotomist. "We're the front line of the Red Cross. Without us, there's no blood for them to make their profits."
On Nov. 9, more than 200 union members and elected officials showed support for AFSCME Local 3145 members by attending a solidarity rally. Click here for the video.
