Below is a joint statement from Gov. Polis and Hilary Glasgow, Colorado WINS Executive Director:
The state employees who serve the citizens of Colorado do critical work to keep us safe, clear our roads, provide nursing care for our veterans, maintain our parks and natural resources, keep our air and water clean, respond to emergencies and so much more. We value the voices of state employees in improving public services and fostering innovation and efficiency. Since 2007, the State and Colorado WINS have worked in partnership to improve public services for all Coloradans.
To achieve our shared goal of providing the highest quality public services for Coloradans, the State of Colorado and state employees, represented by Colorado WINS, will expand our existing partnership to make the state an example of innovation in public service. Additionally, over the next 6 months we will enter into discussions to address outstanding issues surrounding House Bill 1273 and other issues affecting the state workforce and the people of Colorado that cannot be resolved in the few remaining days that exist in the legislative session. We are confident that we will successfully resolve these outstanding issues before the 2020 legislative session.
We believe we all benefit when frontline workers come together to find solutions so that Colorado is a place where all families and communities can thrive.
