Yesterday was pretty important.
The Colorado House held its very first hearing on the WINS bill, legislation that would finally give state employees like us the freedom to collectively bargain a union contract. And it passed its first hurdle! We still have a long way to go, though.
We know that the WINS bill would improve Colorado’s public services and give nearly 29,000 state employees the power to better serve our communities.
With a stronger voice on the job, we can work with managers to tackle the serious issues like understaffing, low morale, and high staff turnover that are undermining the quality of public services for Coloradans — sometimes in dangerous ways.
We need to make sure that lawmakers hear our voices and know that state employees deserve a real seat at the decision-making table with our supervisors.
Show state lawmakers that you support giving state employees the opportunity for a stronger voice and a real seat at the decision-making table.
