- UDWA Regional Office for Riverside: 877/483-9937

LMC MISSION STATEMENT
The United Domestic Workers of America (UDWA) and the In-Home Supportive Services Public Authority (IHSS-PA) Labor Management Committee (LMC) has been established to provide Homecare Workers and management alike, an opportunity to work together to discover, discuss, and resolve issues/problems of mutual concern not typically covered by the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The UDWA and the IHSS-PA anticipate that the LMC will explore and make recommendations about issues mutually identified, which have impact on the working relationship between the UDWA/Home Care Workers/IHSS-PA/IHSS Consumers (herein after referred to as “all parties concerned”).
It is anticipated that the representatives appointed by the UDWA and the IHSS-PA will use this opportunity to work together to attain the following goals:
- All recommendations and decisions will be based on the best interest of the IHSS Consumers.
- Respect and value the diversity and talents of all parties involved with the objective of improving relationships at all levels.
- Improve communication with all parties involved, at all levels and in all directions.
- Establish a sense of collaboration and empowerment for all parties involved through participation.
The Riverside Bargaining Committee is a group of volunteer home care providers and clients who work together with union staff to negotiate for better wages and health benefits with the county The work usually involves several months of consistent meetings with the IHSS Public Authority, County Representatives, and the Riverside Board of Supervisors in Public Session. These meetings take place in the city of Riverside, usually at the County Administrative Center on Lemon Street.
When we need to negotiate a new contract we will begin contacting members to put together a bargaining committee for that contract. Contact your local UDW regional office if you would like to be on the nest bargaining committee.
Meets quarterly, location varies

The IHSS Advisory Committee is a committee that is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, and is comprised of IHSS home care providers and clients as well as other representatives from the community. Its purpose is to provide ongoing advice and recommendations regarding IHSS to the Board of Supervisors, The Department of Social Services, and the IHSS Public Authority.

Join us! — The Riverside County IHSS Advisory Committee presently has openings for two consumers of IHSS.
For more information, or if you are interested in becoming a Committee member, contact the IHSS Public Authority AC secretary: Toll Free (888) 470-4477
Your IHSS Advisory Committee Mission Statement
The mission of this committee is “To assist IHSS Consumers in Living with Authority, Safely in Their Own Homes.” The IHSS Advisory Committee shall serve as a liaison for communication between the Board of Supervisors, IHSS Public Authority, Department of Public Social Services, and the consumers/clients and their providers (home care workers) in the Riverside IHSS program . In the course of educating, empowering, and advocating for the IHSS community, it is the Committee’s responsibility to seek out input from those participating in IHSS, incorporate their voices in reports to all stakeholders, and recommend ongoing improvements to the IHSS program.
After the State sets the level of funding appropriated for IHSS, your County Board of Supervisors are the authorities who set pay levels and benefits in your county. UDW must negotiate with the County Supervisors, through their representatives, for your pay raises and benefits. When home care workers appear at the Board of Supervisor meetings, we talk to the Board about the importance of our work, and let them know that we want them to represent us with their decisions. As taxpayers and voters, we elect members of the board, and they are therefore accountable to us.
The Board of Supervisors hold public meetings, during which anyone is allowed to speak. During negotiations it’s important for home care providers to attend these meetings and speak before the board. Even if you are not comfortable speaking, your presence is crucial and shows political interest and influence. Bring your client(s) and family members. There is power in numbers. UDW can let you know when it is best to attend.
The Riverside Board of Supervisors Meets every Tuesday morning at 9:00 AM:
Riverside County Board of Supervisors
County Administrative Center annex
4080 Lemon Street, 1st floor
Riverside, CA 92501
(Meetings are held on the first floor – inquire at desk.)
These meetings are open to the public. Speakers must fill out registration card and limit their comments to three minutes.
You can also call, write, or email your Board of Supervisors to let them know you are aware of their decisions and you are concerned about home care workers.
Write: to address above
Each Supervisor in the County has his or her own email address, office, and phone number. It is therefore best to go to their website, where you can get all their individual data as well as determining which one represents your particular district in the County.
