In October 1974, after months of unsuccessful contract negotiations, Red Cross blood drive employees, members of AFSMCE Connecticut Local 1303, went out on strike. After about two months of striking, negotiators reached an agreement, and workers returned to their jobs without reprisals on December 15, 1974. The settlement won significant gains for the three Local 1303 units, Nurses, Driver Technicians, and Laboratory Technicians. During their campaign, the units recorded radio spots to raise public awareness and earn public support for their cause. This spot was done by the Driver Technicians' Unit.
