Child Care Providers

We’re building a bigger, stronger voice for ourselves and our children.

Child Care Providers are the most recent Industry Division to join SEIU Local 99. Our Executive Board voted to create a new Child Care Division within SEIU Local 99 on January 21, 2012. This means that Local 99 formally recognizes as members all family child care providers in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties who join us.

California’s family child care providers have worked for years to build a union. And they’ve got a diaper-pail-full of reasons for wanting one:

  • A broken child care system that has led to providers going months without pay to the point of having to close their doors
  • A lack of quality training
  • A need for higher standards so that all children being cared for in home settings are prepared for kindergarten
  • Thousands of families on waiting lists for their services.

We can now support one another in our mission to preserve quality jobs and a quality education for our children—from cradle to college! Child care providers will continue to need support. Their fight is not over. While they are now full members of SEIU Local 99, they are still fighting to be granted collective bargaining rights by the State. Until then, they are without a contract and without a seat at the table to fix the broken system.
