UDW (The Home Care Providers Union)

UDW is a union for home care workers, by home care workers. We look after loved ones in our families, or we care for community members who need our assistance. Many of us left paid, full-time jobs to do this work, and we frequently work more hours than we are paid for. Our union allows us to fight for better working conditions collectively and, as a result, we have experienced many victories for home care over the past several decades, starting with the creation of California’s In-Home Supportive Services program (IHSS) in 1973.    http://www.udwa.org
