Over objections from the governor’s office, the lobbying group “A Better Colorado” has apparently submitted enough valid signatures to put a referendum on the November ballot to ban all-union workplaces in Colorado.
The measure would amend the state constitution by eliminating the current process that allows employees to vote on whether they want to establish an all-union shop.
Gov. Bill Ritter expressed concern that a battle between right-to-work advocates and labor unions could harm the state’s economy.
Spokesman Evan Dreyer said, “Governor Ritter remains fully committed to doing everything possible to ensure none of these measures end up on the November ballot.”
