Colo. governor vetoes bill on unionized employees

DENVER — Gov. Bill Ritter has once again angered union workers by vetoing a bill that would have eliminated Colorado’s pay for performance program.

In his veto message, the governor acknowledged today that the state personnel system is broken, but he says it would cost too much to switch to a system based on annual rate increases.

Ritter angered union leaders in 2007 when he vetoed a bill that would have made it easier for them to form closed shops, even though he had promised to support it.
