(Feb. 19) – After receiving a letter today from Gov. John Hickenlooper clarifying his position on a bill to allow collective bargaining for firefighters, Speaker Mark Ferrandino issued the following statement:
“We have said from the beginning that we will work with all stakeholders on this critical issue. I’m calling on all the involved parties to come together in the coming days to find common ground. Through constructive dialogue I know a good path forward can be found that addresses many of the concerns raised by all sides. Our firefighters deserve our very best efforts.”
“I am committed to working with all parties to solve this critical issue for our brave firefighters,” said Rep. Angela Williams (D-Denver), the House sponsor of the bill.
