Denver Post: Colorado governor, state union agree to raises for more than 30,000 employees under first-of-its-kind labor agreement

November 19, 2021

Today, standing alongside Governor Polis, members of Colorado WINS, the union of Colorado state employees, and Colorado Care Workers Unite celebrated the momentous raises they won this year for tens of thousands of Colorado’s underpaid essential workers.

State employees and Governor Polis signed their ground-breaking first contract today, which state employees voted overwhelmingly to ratify last night.

In a ceremony that brought the Colorado WINS negotiating team together in person for the first time, members celebrated together with union members from CCWU. Together unions are making the way for a better Colorado!
