CUHW is a statewide labor organization representing over 20,000 home care workers within California’s IHSS program in 25 counties.
Thank You, Homecare Workers!
This was made by one of our Fair Wage Folks in 2012.
the following came via Redwood Progressive [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] email letter :
The California United Homecare Workers (CUHW) union will be holding a rally on Tuesday and we need your help to make it a success. Please join us as we continue our fight to improve the lives of those who keep our seniors and people with disabilities healthy at home. Here are the details:
What: Rally for Homecare Justice – Wear red to show that you “have a heart” for homecare.
Where: Humboldt County Courthouse, 825 Fifth Street, Eureka
When: Tuesday, February 5 at 12:30 pm
Why: Negotiations with the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, acting as the Humboldt County In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority, have dragged on for over a year as the Supervisors have refused to offer a single penny to the lowest paid caregivers in California. After the workers put forward a Settlement Proposal last December, the Board of Supervisors unilaterally ended negotiations and refused to consider the proposal.
We will be joined at the rally by allies from local non-profits, other unions, the disability rights community, and senior advocates, among others. We hope you will be able to join us too. Following the rally, community supporters are invited to attend a reception at the union’s office, located at 314 L Street, Eureka.
