Hello sisters and brothers,

It has been a busy and exciting time for UDW caregivers over the last three months. In June, we witnessed passage of a state budget that protects continuity of care for our clients and won overtime pay for IHSS providers. What a tremendous victory!

Together, we are unstoppable. That’s why we are making a group of anti-worker billionaires really nervous. They’ve attacked our union before, and now they have taken it to new heights with a lawsuit called Harris vs. Quinn.

Harris vs. Quinn was financed by a billionaire-backed group that has been working to eliminate unions for four decades. We are disappointed that the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court sided with wealthy CEO’s over caregivers, but we will never let them silence our voices.

Our legal team is reviewing the decision closely, and we are not sitting back to let others decide the fate of our families and clients. In fact, over the last several months, we have signed up over 17,000 caregivers to join us as UDW members! I encourage you to call your local UDW office to volunteer and get more involved.

Together, we have the power to protect homecare. Together, we will keep fighting for our clients and loved ones!

In unity,

Editha signature
