DENVER (AP) -- Colorado union members say they support a move by unions to change their image and support jobs for everyone, not just union jobs.
Danny Lopez, a member of Teamster's Local 17 in Denver, says too many companies are setting up two tiers for workers --one for old hires who got better benefits, another for new hires barely making minimum wages.
Lopez said Tuesday at a rally for unions on the west steps of the Capitol that union support for all jobs will help all workers.
The union agenda announced on Tuesday includes incentives for hiring more Colorado workers and fixing the state's unemployment insurance fund, which has been broke since June.
