There is so much going on with UDW-CCPU right now it is hard to keep up! Our movement of family child care providers has grown by thousands over the past few months and those added voices are making our call to fix California’s broken child care system impossible to ignore. We have the attention of state lawmakers, the media and, most importantly, the working parents with whom we are partnering to make childcare work better for providers–as well as for the families we serve.
Here are some of the exciting things that UDW-CCPU members have made happen in the past few weeks:
This is a HUGE win for us. The Blue Ribbon Commission is the first legislative body to come out in support of our collective bargaining rights. The recommendation comes in no small part due to the many trips to Sacramento UDW-CCPU members have made over the past few years to attend hearings and share our experiences as providers with commission members. Some of our members will be quoted in the final report—stay tuned and we will share it with you when it comes out!
Talk about momentum! We are on a roll.
We are making progress, but we won’t stop until we get what we need: a childcare system where every family has access to affordable, high-quality child care and every child care provider has the compensation and support they need. Join us and get involved in our movement to build a better child care system in California!
