CPC Stands in Solidarity with Human Services Organizations on the Day Without Human Services
On May 25th, CPC temporarily paused the majority of our programming and mobilized nearly 400 staff and community members to join over 5,000 individuals to advocate for better wages and benefits at the Day Without Human Services rally at City Hall. The rally served as a platform to advocate for a 6.5% cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in the final City budget, highlighting the importance of fair compensation for those dedicated to serving the community.
City contracts establish specific wage levels of human services workers that must be strictly adhered to by employers. The final City budget is due at the end of June, and so far, it does not include a COLA for human services workers. This impacts our workers, our community members, and our programs.
