Traditionally, the home-based care world has been mostly void of massive unionization efforts among its workers.
But that could change soon, thanks to a new ruling out of California related to “Assembly Bill 2455,” which the state passed in 2018. The bill aims to allow home-based care workers’ contact information to be unveiled, which gives unions the opportunity to contact workers on a more meaningful scale.
While the bill was passed a few years ago, home care associations have worked to block it, even filing suit in federal court. A federal district court heard dueling motions for summary judgment in the case earlier this month.
