United Domestic Workers of America, AFSCME Local 3930, AFL-CIO is a union for home care workers, by home care workers. We look after loved ones in our families, as well as 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.
Today, we are led by a group of dedicated members committed to protecting the IHSS program for our clients, making improvements to IHSS that positively impact the lives of clients and providers, and raising wages and expanding benefits for IHSS home care workers.
