2023 Spring: Letter from UDW Statewide President, Editha Adams

May 12, 2023

Dear Fellow UDW members,

Since the formation of our union more than 40 years ago, we’ve had to fight tooth and nail for our work to be acknowledged. We’ve seen our system continuously fail to create a wage standard for our invaluable work—and we can’t stand for that any longer.

This year, IHSS providers across the state are joining forces with elected legislative partners to win statewide bargaining and allow us to directly negotiate with the Governor, rather than county-by-county.
Our futures are up to us! Join me in learning more about our new efforts and helping secure better lives for caregivers, our clients, and our families.

In solidarity,
Editha Adams
UDW Statewide President
