From the summary:
In February 2007, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) published Getting Organized: Unionizing Home-Based Child Care Providers. That report focused on the growing movement to authorize home-based child care providers—both regulated family child care (FCC) providers and “family, friend, and neighbor” (FFN) care providers who are exempt from regulation but receive public funds—to join unions and negotiate with the state for better compensation and working conditions. This 2013 Update reports on legal developments between early 2010 and October 2013 that expanded—or limited—authority for home-based child care providers to organize and negotiate with the state.
