Favoring labor cartels over competition

The Greater Golden Chamber of Commerce's board voted Wednesday to oppose the right-to-work ballot initiative being pushed by an executive from one of its own member organizations.

Greater Golden Chamber President Gary Wink said the 13-member board based its decision on Amendment 47 solely on concerns about too many voter initiatives aiming to change the constitution. But he acknowledged the group declined to vote on any other efforts to alter the constitution via the ballot box.

The key supporter of a right-to-work proposal that would ban all-union workplaces: Jonathan Coors, an executive at CoorsTek and a descendant of the Golden-based brewery giant's founders.

Wink said CoorsTek and Coors Brewing both hold memberships in the chamber but do not currently have executives serving on its board.
