Getting Organized: Unionizing Home-Based Child Care Providers describes a recent and growing trend to unionize home-based child care providers, both regulated family child care providers and family, friend, and neighbor providers who are exempt from regulation but receive public funds. Unionization is proving to be a promising strategy for securing increased public investment in child care. Getting Organized analyzes the campaigns for unionization and provides detailed information about a states where home-based providers have achieved formal recognition, states where local organizing activity is ongoing and states where unionization legislation has failed. It also describes in detail the benefits to providers and families that have been triggered by the unionization efforts.  NWLC has since published a 2010 update and a 2013 update to Getting Organized.
