Pay for plasma: Canadian Blood Services must say noAt long last, CUPE 3807 reached a tentative agreement with Quebec’s blood service agency on November 27. The collective agreement had expired June 23, 2015.

The local represents about 60 employees including registration attendants at mobile donor clinics and Globule blood donor centres, call centre agents, and volunteer liaison and recruitment officers in Montreal.  

Both parties will recommend ratification in the coming weeks. The tentative agreement will not be released publicly until CUPE 3807 members have seen the details of the deal.
