Re-commit to your union today.
DID YOU KNOW…
A rule proposed by the federal government will stop health care payments and union dues from being deducted automatically from our IHSS paychecks.
In order to remain a UDW member and pay your dues, you must sign our new membership reauthorization card, which includes updated language that will keep you a member in good standing.
DON’T WORRY, IT’S EASY
Just go to www.MyUDW.org and sign the new membership card today. There will be no interruption in your member benefits and we will continue to build the member power we need to protect IHSS and make life better for caregivers and clients!
WHY YOU SHOULD RE-COMMIT
We have done so much together as a union to protect IHSS and make life better for caregivers: stopping cuts to our program, winning overtime and sick pay, winning the right to use electronic timesheets, and creating time and money-saving tools like the IHSS Help app and the UDW U.S. Bank Focus Card.
We have been able do all this because of our member power. Alone, we are just one caregiver struggling to be heard. Together, we are 110,000 voices that will not be silenced. We must continue to use the power of our combined voices to protect IHSS and fight for better lives for caregivers, our loved ones, and our communities.
