Congratulations to Domestic Workers United, for the passage of the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights in the NY State Legislature! On June 1st, the NY State Legislature passed a bill that provides collective bargaining rights and labor protection for domestic workers. If Gov. Patterson signs the bill into law, it will be the first of its kind in the country.
Today, domestic workers, along with the National Domestic Worker Alliance, are in the forefront of launching this powerful and winning model of DataCenter’s research capacity-building on a national scale.
