Council opposes collective bargaining bill
(Jan 17, 2013)
Since the start of the Colorado legislative session on Jan. 9, the City of Westminster has been actively reviewing legislation at the State Capitol.
Earlier this week, City Council officially opposed SB 13-025: (Tochtrop) concerning collective bargaining by firefighters.
This bill would preempt the City of Westminster constitutional home rule authority and the will of the residents of Westminster, who have already voted against collective bargaining in a previous local election.
