This September, thousands of CCPU-UDW members—our union’s family child care providers—voted to approve CCPU’s historic Healthcare Fund Tentative Agreement and a new union dues structure. It took tremendous effort to win this health care benefit for family child care providers, but our dedication to stand strong together made it possible!
Horace Turner, a child care provider from Stanislaus County, was ecstatic about the win. “It’s a sigh of relief to see something we’ve fought so hard for finally come to fruition, and I want us all to take moment and appreciate the fact that we won something historic for child care providers,” he said. “Let’s take a moment to celebrate our win, but also know that it’s not enough and we’re not done fighting for our futures yet!”

CCPU-UDW members voted YES on:
1) The first healthcare benefit for family child care providers of its kind in the nation, which will set aside $100 million in ongoing funding to lower or eliminate healthcare costs for insured and uninsured family child care providers across the state. The funding can be used to cover health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket medical expenses.
2) CCPU’s new dues structure which is the next step in building a more powerful and financially stable union that can fight to earn the wages and benefits child care providers desperately need.
Stay tuned to learn more about these wins and how you can get involved!
