California Child Providers United (CCPU) brings together thousands of child care providers throughout California who work together to improve our profession and ensure every child has access to quality early learning and care.
CCPU is made up of a statewide partnership between three powerful unions – SEIU Local 99 Education Workers in Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, SEIU Local 521 in the Central Valley and Bay Area, and United Domestic Workers Alliance in San Diego.
As union members, child care providers have a powerful voice to improve our livelihoods and the services we provide. Together, we’ve already been able to win rate increases, improved state funding for early care and education, more training for providers, and additional child care slots for families.
To continue to win lasting changes for child care, we’re working to pass legislation that will give providers collective bargaining rights. Collective bargaining rights will give us a seat at the table with the state of California to negotiate our reimbursement rates and working conditions, including changes to rules, payment systems, and more!
We’re stronger when we’re united. Become a member of CCPU.
