Join our Colorado WINS family today.

Congrats! Welcome to our union family!
Oops. There was an issue submitting your application.

When we come together as a union, we can win improvements we can't achieve on our own. Together, we can improve the critical services Coloradans depend on -- because no one knows more about what our communities need than the people who keep our state running every day. By becoming a member and contributing 1.5% of your base salary you'll be a part of the Colorado state employees' union and contribute to the state we all love.

Membership Authorization*

I request and voluntarily accept membership in Colorado WINS Local 1876 and its successors and assigns (collectively “Colorado WINS Local 1876”). This means I will receive the benefits and abide by the obligations of membership set forth in both Colorado WINS Local 1876's and the Service Employees International Union's Constitutions and Bylaws. I authorize Colorado WINS Local 1876 to act as my representative in collective bargaining over wages, benefits, and other terms/conditions of employment with my employer, and as my exclusive representative where authorized by law. My membership will be continuous, unless I resign by providing notice to Colorado WINS Local 1876 via U.S. mail (or other method if permitted by Colorado WINS Local 1876's policies). I know that union membership is voluntary and not a condition of employment, and that I can decline to join without reprisal.

Dues Deduction Authorization*

I request and voluntarily authorize my employer to deduct from my earnings and to pay to Colorado WINS Local 1876 and its successors and assigns (collectively “Colorado WINS Local 1876”) an amount equal to Colorado WINS Local 1876's the regular dues. This dues authorization shall remain in effect unless I revoke it by providing notice to Colorado WINS Local 1876 via U.S. mail (or other method if permitted by Colorado WINS Local 1876's policies) within 15 days before or after (1) the annual anniversary date of this agreement or (2) the termination of the applicable collective bargaining agreement between my employer and union (my “window periods”). This authorization will renew automatically from year to year even if I have resigned my membership, unless I revoke it during a window period and as required by Colorado WINS Local 1876's policies. This authorization is voluntary and is not a condition of my employment, and I can decline to agree to it without reprisal. I understand that all members benefit from everyone's commitments because they help to build a strong union that is able to plan for the future.

COPE Authorization: Hold politicians accountable

Would you like to contribute to COPE? If so, how much?

Yes! I want to hold politicians accountable to working families and I know we can only do that if we stand together. I hereby authorize my employer to withhold the indicated amount per month to forward to Colorado WINS Local 1876 and its successors and assigns (hereinafter “Colorado WINS Local 1876") as a contribution to SEIU Committee on Political Education (“SEIU COPE”) and AFT Committee on Political Education (“AFT COPE”). My signature shows that I agree with the terms below.

This authorization is made voluntarily based on my specific understanding that: 1) I am not required to sign this form or make voluntary contributions to SEIU COPE or AFT COPE as a condition of my employment or membership in the union; 2) I may refuse to contribute without reprisal; 3) Under law, only union members and executive / administrative staff who are U.S. Citizens or lawful permanent residents are eligible to contribute to SEIU COPE or AFT COPE; 4) The contribution amounts on this form are merely suggestions, and I may contribute more or less by this or other means without fear of favor or disadvantage from SEIU or my employer; 5) SEIU COPE and AFT COPE uses the money it receives for political purposes – including, but not limited to, making contributions to and expenditures on behalf of candidates for federal, state, and local offices – and addressing political issues of public importance; (6) I understand that my contribution will be allocated 75% to SEIU COPE and 25% to AFT COPE, and that I am free to change this allocation by informing Colorado WINS in writing; and (7) I understand that AFT COPE may engage in joint fundraising efforts with the AFL-CIO; ; and (8) this authorization shall remain in effect until revoked by me in writing via U.S. mail to Colorado WINS Local 1876.
