We are thrilled to be growing our union so that we can build better futures for care workers and our communities!
Find out what some of our newest union members are saying about UDW:

“UDW showed me that we caregivers aren’t alone and that there is help for us! It’s comforting to know that there are people who will fight on behalf of providers and our families.”

Monica Ocampo, IHSS provider, San Diego County

“When I learned that CCPU was a community to help support other providers, I knew I had to be a part of it! I’m excited to use my skills to give back to the children, their families, and other providers!”

Hilary Budd, family child care provider, Riverside County

“It’s such a blessing to have the knowledge of the union backing me and even when the staff are busy, they make sure to get back to me and answer my questions as soon as they can.”

Laura Flores, IHSS provider, Kern County
