Support the Humboldt County IHSS Workers Struggle for Fair Pay!

forwarded from Shane Brinton <>

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

If you know anyone who is an In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) worker or a recipient who benefits from these vital services, you have probably heard about the struggle to win better wages and benefits for homecare workers.  You are invited to learn more about this ongoing struggle – and how you can get involved – at one of the following community coffee meetings later this week:

–Thursday, November 1  9:00 am to 10:30 am  Golden Harvest Cafe  1062 G Street  Arcata

– Thursday, November 1  4:00 pm to 5:30 pm  Starbucks  1924 Central Avenue  McKinleyville

— Friday, November 2  4:00 pm to 5:30 pm  Calico’s Cafe  808 Redwood Drive  Garberville

– These meetings are being hosted by the California United Homecare Workers (CUHW), the union that represents IHSS providers in Humboldt County. Our statewide President Gail Ennis will be available to answer questions, as will local members and organizers.  This is an open invitation to all homecare workers, IHSS recipients, and anyone else who is interested in learning more. We’ll treat you to a cup of coffee or tea and chat about this important struggle.

RSVP appreciated, but not required. Please respond to   In Solidarity,  Shane Brinton  Humboldt Community Outreach Liaison  California United Homecare Workers  AFSCME / SEIU Local 4034  Cell:             (707) 382-7270
