American Red Cross (ARC) workers, including many AFSCME members, are rallying this week in cities nationwide to fight back against mistreatment from their employer and demand a fair contract. The protests are being held in Washington; Lansing, Michigan; Peoria, Illinois; Hartford, Connecticut; Pomona, California; and San Diego.

Dear Members of AFSCME Local 127,

The purpose of this email is to provide Members with Fifteen-Day Notice of the Election. See AFSCME Local Election Manual (p. 11); see also Constitution for Local 127, Art. VII, Sec. 2.

Members of AFSCME Local 127,

Congratulations to all who received a Special Salary Adjustment (SSA)!

They collect, protect and deliver our nation’s blood supply, yet the almost 3,000 American Red Cross workers are not being paid what they deserve, lack the staff to do their jobs effectively, face cuts to their health care and, over the course of the pandemic, have often gone without pay and adequate personal protective equipment (PPE).

Dear Members of AFSCME Local 127,

AFSCME Local 127 encourages you to attend and participate in two upcoming virtual meetings via Zoom. The purpose of these meetings is (1) to vote on the method of which the leaders of Local 127 will be elected and (2) to nominate members of Local 127 to the elected positions. For reasons discussed below, both meetings are necessary to comply with the Constitution of AFSCME Local 127.
