Unions protest Colorado governor’s visit to monument
LUDLOW, Colorado – Union members upset with Gov. Bill Ritter over recent vetoes turned their backs to him in protest at an event commemorating the site of the 1914 Ludlow massacre as a historic landmark.
United Food and Commercial Workers Union and Pueblo firefighters were among those expressing their dislike Sunday of Ritter’s recent vetoes.
One of the bills would’ve allowed firefighters to unionize without local government approval. Another would’ve provided unemployment benefits to workers locked out by employers during labor disputes.
Ritter defended his decisions, saying he has a record of supporting working families.
