Caregivers are essential frontline workers, but we don’t always get the same attention as other medical professionals. That’s why our union responded immediately to the COVID-19 crisis, demanding the state of California take immediate, direct action to address the needs of the IHSS community.
And because our united voices give us power, the state listened.
Some of the things UDW won for IHSS providers:
We continue to push for the protections we need to get us through this crisis, like hazard pay, protecting next year’s minimum wage increase, more hours for our clients, and a permanent expansion of Unemployment Insurance to parent and spouse providers. We get things done when we stand together and keep our union strong.
