Request time off today to talk with your legislators about issues affecting our work environments and the services we provide. We will also be urging the legislature to include a 3% pay raise for state employees in the state budget. The increase, whether it’s the proposed 1.5%, the 3% we’re working toward, or something in between, depends on how many employees speak up on the issue.
Only a louder voice of employees united across departments and the state can deliver a raise of more than 1.5%. More members, a louder voice, and better recognition for the services state workers provide a better chance at a meaningful increase.
During Lobby Day you will be able to:
- Talk with legislators
- Strategize with fellow Colorado WINS members
- Discuss issues relevant to state employees, such as raises, healthcare costs and working conditions
The training for Lobby Day will be Sunday evening, Feb. 23, at WINS Denver headquarters. All Lobby Day attendees should be present at training.
