Workplace Issues Today: Union coalition helps avoid furloughs for Colorado workers

The union coalition Workers for Innovation and New Solutions (WINS) has made much progress in Colorado by preventing worker furloughs and creating a team to address other issues such as healthcare, wages, and work conditions. The Governor of Colorado, Bill Ritter, expressed gratitude towards WINS for their part in avoiding furloughs and layoffs. He implied, however, that further unions victories would be much more difficult given the current budget situation. In the past tensions between Ritter and state unions have been rather high.
