This year’s 7th Annual High School Filipino/a Graduation of San Diego (HS FilGrad) is in part sponsored by the United Domestic Workers of America (UDW) Homecare Providers Union AFSCME Local 3930/AFL-CIO.
“UDW is a union for homecare workers, by homecare workers. We look after loved ones in our families, or we care for 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 homecare over the past several decades, starting with the creation of California’s In-Home Supportive Services program (IHSS) in 1973.”
