Support our campaign to limit Board of Supervisor terms in Kern County!

After six years of failed negotiations on our contract, UDW and our allies have launched a countywide effort to establish term limits for the Kern County Board of Supervisors (BOS). The current BOS has made it clear they would rather hire expensive law firms and pay unnecessary penalties than simply give IHSS providers a modest pay increase—and we’ve had enough of their disrespect and abuse.

Fighting to raise caregiver pay, county by county

IHSS providers fill an essential need for California: caring for low-income seniors and people with disabilities in their homes so they can live in comfort and with dignity—and so the state doesn’t have to pay for more costly institutional care.
