Colorado Workers for Innovation and New Solutions (WINS) represents state employees who work to ensure our quality of life in communities across Colorado. We work in partnership with the state to improve working conditions, safety, quality of services, conflict resolution, staff attrition, pay and benefits and more to ensure that we have an effective workforce to serve all Coloradans.

How much is membership?

The amount of dues you pay is set by members themselves. Until October 2013, when the law is up for a vote, dues are 1.25% of your base pay per pay period (overtime not included). That works out to be only one half of a work hour in any given work week, and only about 2 hours a month.

Want some real math? For example, for a full-time employee with a base pay rate of $10/hr ($20.8K/yr), the approximate monthly dues are $21.67.* If your full-time base pay rate is $35/hr ($72.8K/yr), your approximate monthly dues would be about $75.83.**

* (20,800×0.0125)÷12=21.67
**(72,800×0.0125)÷12=75.83
