WINS members ask legislators for greater voice on the job

Last Tuesday, nearly 50 members from across the state talked face-to-face with our senators and representatives at the Capitol about the crisis facing our state and how state workers are the key to effective solutions.

We told them how we’re losing experts who are taking the plunge into the private sector where they earn more, creating a vicious cycle of understaffing and forced overtime. The people of Colorado lose millions because of turnover, wasting money that could fund services they need.

We also shared the good news that public employees know how to solve these problems, but we need their support to get a seat at the table with managers and department executives to get the job done. We asked them to stand with us so we can get a voice on the job to keep Colorado running smoothly.

Workers from DEN International Airport and home care providers were at the capitol, too, all of us fighting for freedom to form unions, higher wages, and a voice on the job in our workplaces. We’re stronger together and when we fight, we win!
