The union representing about 160 American Red Cross workers has reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.
President Doreen Barclay of the Communications Workers of America Local 13-hundred says she likes the contract and is encouraging people to vote for it.
The union represents about 160 of the 700 workers employed by the Red Cross' Greater Alleghenies Blood Services Region, which provides blood to southwestern Pennsylvania and parts of five other states.
A ratification vote will be held within two weeks.
The Greater Alleghenies region, based in Johnstown, Pennsylvania supplies blood to 100 counties, including all of southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia and parts of Maryland.
