40,000 Child Care Providers in California Gain Right to Unionize

HeadlineOct 02, 2019

In labor news, tens of thousands of child care providers in California have gained the right to unionize under a new law signed on Monday. The law will impact 40,000 workers at daycare centers that get state subsidies. While the child care workers won’t be considered state employees, they will be able to collectively bargain over wages and other issues. Child care providers have been organizing around the issue for 16 years.
