Colorado WINS: When State Employees Have A Voice

About Colorado WINS

Colorado Workers for Innovative and New Solutions (WINS) is a union representing more than 31,000 state employees who work to ensure our quality of life in communities across the state. We care for veterans, the sick, and the disabled; we maintain the safety and use of our roads and bridges; we protect the quality of our drinking water and air; we assist those hurt by the economic downturn; we provide stewardship to public lands and boost tourism; we keep our jails and communities secure and provide many other essential services.

History and accomplishments

In 2007, state employees came together to form Colorado Workers for Innovative and New Solutions (WINS). Members from three of the state’s employee organizations decided to pool our resources for a greater voice to improve state jobs and services. We work in partnership with the state to improve quality of services, working conditions, safety, conflict resolution, staff attrition, pay and benefits and more to ensure that we have an effective workforce to serve all Coloradans.
