From our healthcare facilities and airports to our highways and even people’s homes, we keep essential businesses running and our communities safe, clean, healthy, and cared for.
As Coloradans, we know what’s possible when we stand together. Whether we live in Denver or Durango, Fort Morgan or Fort Collins, Black, white, or brown, we all want the same things: to make a decent living, see our loved ones of all ages lead full, healthy lives, and to live in a thriving community. By joining together, we decide the future—a future where every Coloradan, no matter our race, zip code or background, can thrive.
WORKING PEOPLE’s PLATFORM
The Working People’s Platform is what we are fighting for.

The Union Difference
We demand a Colorado where our economy and democracy work for all of us, not just the wealthy few!
No matter what we look like, where we live, who we love or what’s in our wallets, we understand that we’re all in this together. We have seen the risks working people continue to take in order to care for us and keep us safe, housed, fed, educated, and able to work
The opportunity to join a union — no matter where we work — is the best way to raise wages, ensure safe working conditions, create family-sustaining jobs, and begin to fix the rigged economy. When we have good union jobs, our economy and democracy are stronger and our communities thrive.
