Thanks to testimony from CWA members, including nine new Denver Health Workers United members, the Colorado legislature passed a bill barring employers from taking disciplinary action against employees who report workplace safety issues during a public health crisis. The whistleblower bill will now head to Gov. Jared Polis for a signature. During the process, the CWA members spoke up about unsafe working conditions including having to reuse facemasks and other PPE.
"As a member of Denver Health Workers United, we made this bill happen," said Rosalina Roacho Delgado Robles. "I'm so happy to be a part of this union where we make a difference in ensuring health and safety for all."
"I testified because DHWU empowered me to speak out for the health and safety of the community," said Christine García Rexach. "I'm pleased our concerns were heard and validated with the bill."
