CO Workers United

We Make Colorado Happen  

We keep our children and families safe and healthy, our communities clean and welcoming, and ensure all Coloradans have access to government services. We’re proud of the work we do. Because public service isn’t just a job. It’s a calling. We help people get back on their feet. We maintain the infrastructure we all depend on every day.  

That’s why we’re coming together for respect: for a voice on the job and a seat at the table. Together, we can win strong public services and jobs — for stronger communities.  

Coloradoans have a voice on the job! 

Jefferson County Public Library workers just joined Adams County and Pueblo County in securing a voice on the job! We all now have a seat at the table and a voice to advocate for the issues that matter to us, whether that be better pay or benefits, job security, or safety at work. With our union, we now have the power to be a part of the decisions that impact our lives!! Join us in creating the change you want to see at your workplace today!

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. – Jefferson County Public Library workers made Colorado history last week by becoming the first group to organize a union under the state’s new collective bargaining law for county employees. The workers voted to form a union with AFSCME Council 18.   

We in Pueblo County, and all essential county workers in Colorado, need a protected voice at work so we can partner with management to solve the crucial issues plaguing our departments. This right already belongs to Colorado’s state workers and the majority of private sector workers, it only makes sense that Colorado’s county workers be afforded this same, basic freedom.
Some legislative leaders want to give all local public worker unions the power to collectively bargain, but they're up against a lot of powerful opponents.
