2019 Homecare / Personal Support Worker Bargaining Survey: Part 1 -- Wages, Benefits, and Retirement

Negotiations for our next union contract start in March 2019, and caregivers like you will sit down with representatives from the State of Oregon to bargain our next contract. We need to know what changes you'd like to see.

We know there are many important issues to tackle, so we are launching a three part survey.
  • November: Wages, Benefits & Retirement 
  • December: Improving payroll systems 
  • January: Training, Registry & other important issues

Private Homecare

Private Homecare providers do the same work as Consumer-Employed Providers, but are paid less and don't have any of the protections of being united in a union. Having a large group of providers doing the same work we do but for lower pay weakens our negotiating power — the State points to the standards in private agencies when we negotiate our contract. The first step in an organizing campaign is mapping our relationships to the industry.
