On Thursday, April 20, SEIU Local 2015, the country’s largest long-term care union and California’s largest labor union representing nearly 450,000 nursing home and home care workers, hosted a town hall event with local elected officials and its members to discuss a path forward to addressing the issues plaguing the long-term care industry. 

The discussion focused on AB 1672, a new bill that has been introduced to empower caregivers to transform California’s In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program statewide and protect the right and freedom of Californians to receive care in the setting of their choice. This legislation, launched in partnership with the United Domestic Workers (UDW), would enable workers to negotiate directly with the State to make changes needed to recruit, train, and retain the home care workforce California needs as we age.
