Join your union sisters and brothers at the Colorado Capitol on Tuesday, February 26th, to talk to your lawmakers about issues that affect state employees.
Right now, our union rights are not protected by law, but they should be. In order to ensure the highest quality state jobs and services, the people on the front lines need a forum to directly address the problems the state faces and make joint decisions with state management about how to solve them.
For this to happen, we need lawmakers to expand and improve the current Partnership and place it into statute. But in order to do that, we will need to roll up our sleeves and show our strength at the Capitol, because no one will hand us a Partnership bill victory: we’ll have to fight for it.
Lobby Day is a great opportunity for legislators to meet state employees from their district, instead of their usual barrage of industry lobbyists.
During Lobby Day, we’ll talk to legislators about some of our priorities, including:
- Strengthening our Partnership with the state to ensure workers always have a voice in their jobs
- Securing an appropriate, across the board raise
- Maintaining the 80/20 split on our health insurance costs
Lobby Day will take place in Denver on Tuesday, Feb. 26. At the Capitol members can choose to visit their state representative and/or senators. In most cases, we can call them from the chambers to have a brief discussion or we can meet with them after the daily floor procedures in their office area or outside hearing rooms.
