COVID-19 After Action Report

Dear Brother and Sisters in Corrections,

When we convened our initial ZOOM discussion on the impacts of COVID-19 on correctional staff thirteen officers had died as a result of contracting this disease. Since that time, we have suffered an additional 65 deaths bringing the total to 78 of our brothers and sisters in just eight months.

On October 19th we are hoping that you will be able to join us once again as we reconvene this important working group. We are gathering information and research to produce an after-action report. Attached is a DRAFT survey that we hope will assist us in formulating the report. The survey is a work in progress for which we are seeking your ideas, advice, and edits before we hope to circulate it nationwide.

We know how busy you are and how taxing this situation has become for all of us. In corrections that’s when we do our best work, when our backs are against the wall. That’s when we stand united to face whatever challenge is before us. One of those moments is now.

Please take a moment, review the attached and let us know your thoughts. If you can review this over the next few days and let us know of your willingness to reconvene and your availability on Monday October 19th from 1-3 PM to join us, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again, and one final note. The American Correctional Officer Intelligence Network has formed a formal alliance with One Voice and we have merged as One Voice United. This merger greatly increases our reach and our capabilities to best serve our profession. We have also launched a website at www.onevoiceunited.org and later today we will be announcing the dates and schedule for the 2020 Medal of Honor Awards and Conference. The event will be held next May in DC in conjunction with Law Enforcement Officers week and the candlelight vigil.

Thanks again for your support, we look forward to hearing from you soon and speaking with you on the 19th.

Be safe, be well

Statement on Breonna Taylor

Black Lives Matter
We condemn this miscarriage of justice for Breonna Taylor and her family and are committed to stand in solidarity and fight for our Black, Brown, and Asian brothers and sisters who suffer under this unjust systems in our country. We all deserve to live in a country that rejects racism and takes action to that end.

Ås we mourn the loss of Breonna’s life, an essential worker like us who was killed in her own home, we will also continue to act in her memory and double down on our Resolution in Support of the Movement for Black Lives. We can’t stop the fight to achieve racial and economic justice in our communities, for only when we achieve racial justice will we achieve economic justice, and only when we achieve economic justice will we achieve racial justice.

This November we have the chance to elect people who will fight for a future where everyone, no matter the color of our skin, has an equitable chance to pursue our dreams. Check your voter registration, fill out and turn in your ballot, mobilize your friends and neighbors, and together we will uproot racism from every system where it grows unabated.

9/13 Bargaining Update

COWINS met with the State on Friday September 11th to propose how to save jobs and keep people employed in the face of state agency budget cuts.
We know that layoffs are a possibility in this economy, but with an average of 20% vacancy rates throughout the state agencies COWINS believes we need to keep everyone working and providing vital services to our fellow Coloradans. The last thing we need is more unemployment in our state.

To that purpose COWINS proposed the following:
That prior to the State initiating a layoff of bargaining unit members, each agency will take all steps to cut costs through other means.
If a layoff is to take place that it be based on seniority (as modified by military veteran status).
That any employee slated for layoff be eligible for transfer to any vacant position in their job classification within or outside their current department and agency.
That if no vacant positions exist in their job classification or they are unable to accept a vacant position due location or schedule, then they are placed on a reemployment list and be eligible for recall to any posted position to their job classification in order of seniority.
Any laid off employee who is not placed in a vacant position in their classification, will receive their accrued PTO and a severance payout of one week pay for every year of service plus three months health insurance.
We presented this proposal to the State and expect to hear back from them soon.
