In 2010, domestic workers in New York made history when the nation’s first Domestic Workers Bill of Rights was passed into law. Nannies, housekeepers, and elder caregivers led a six-year struggle to win basic standards and protections for the important work we do to keep New York families functioning.

NDWA’s president, Ai-jen Poo, was selected by Times Magazine (2012) as one of the 100 most influential people in the world!

Union to union solidarity: Several local lodges of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in the USA support for Domestic Workers around the world and urged for the ratification of ILO Convention 189! Their group pictures with ’12 by 12’ aprons are posted on the ’12 by 12’ Facebook page.
