Expanding Agricultural Worker Protections in Colorado (SB 87)

Exploitation of Immigrants and Guestworkers Policy Advocacy


Expanding Agricultural Worker Protections in Colorado by collaborating with a broad coalition of partners to advance Senate Bill 21-087 (“SB87”) regarding Agricultural Labor Rights and Responsibilities.  SB87 provides long-overdue entitlements to Colorado’s agricultural workforce, including the right to minimum wage and overtime protections, and the right to bargain collectively to improve working conditions. The Act also protects agricultural workers from retaliation, grants meal breaks and rest periods, ensures access to transportation and key service providers, and offers health and overwork protections.  After passage of the act, Towards Justice offered extensive comments on agency implementation of the Act’s overtime, heat stress, and service provider access provisions.
