Homecare WOI'K.00rs approve wage c oq00!;t $9.50 per nour Members of the county executive office and California United Homecare Workers Local 4034 have voted to boost wages to $9.50 an hour for more than 600 IHSS homecare providers in Nevada, Sierra and Plumas counties. The increase is expected to take effect in October, pending approval by the county boards of supervisors and the state. For three months, CUHW's team heard the tri-counties' negotiator tell them that their county boards of supervisors had no interest in giving them a raise. They listened, but they didn't accept it. They answered by organizing. "We wouldn't take 'no' for an answer," said Wendy Hayward, Nevada County Chapter chairwoman of Local 4034. "We mobilized our members to go out into our communities and talk about the importance of their work and the stress of trying to live on poverty wages. We built a coalition of community support, which eventually changed the minds of the counties." Team members had one-on-one discussions with their supervisors and mobilized providers to go to the boards of supervisors' meetings and talk about their struggle to take care of the most vulnerable members in society while living on a minimum wage. When the chairperson of the Nevada board tried to cut off CUHW speakers during public comment, more providers came forward to speak, undaunted and not intimidated. The compelling presentation by a Plumas provider prompted front-page coverage in the local newspaper. Meanwhile, providers organized a growing circle of friends, families and allies in the disability rights community. CUHW leaders also met with the social services to explain IHSS funding and to emphasize how economic development in the county is aided by leveraging state and federal dollars. As a result of the growing community support, the agreement for the wage increase was hammered out between CUHW and the Public Authority on May 23. "We hope county leaders and the community will become more aware of the importance of IHSS and the pivotal role this program and its providers play in building a healthy, diverse and welcoming community," Hayward added. IHSS workers in Nevada County will be back negotiating next year when their contract expires Dec. 31, 2015. The CUHW tri-county leadership included Hayward, Sierra Chapter Chairwoman Carol Iman and Plumas County Chairwoman Teri White. They were assisted by organizer Teresa Caples. About IHSS In-Home Supportive Services is a state program to provide low-income adults and children with physical, mental or developmental disabilities the services necessary to allow them to stay safely in their homes. IHSS providers perform many responsibilities, which may include shopping, cleaning, cooking, grooming, incontinence care, transportation to appointments, medication management and safety supervision. Without such services, frail seniors or disabled people risk injury or institutionalization. Many homecare workers are family members, some of whom left careers to care for aging parents or disabled relatives.
