WASHINGTON, D.C. — Mobile collection staff with the American Red Cross in Evansville, Ind., have voted unanimously to join Teamsters Local 215. There are 16 workers in the bargaining unit.

By joining the Teamsters, the new members are now covered under the Teamsters national agreement at American Red Cross. The local union is holding contract proposal meetings for a local supplement that will cover local issues including wages and terms and conditions.

“This group is extremely enthused,” said Chuck Whobrey, President of Local 215. “They’re excited to have health care through TeamCare through the national agreement, and we are meeting now for proposals on our local agreement. We’re happy to welcome them to the Teamsters.”
