    Colo's right-to-work fight backdrop to DNC - By COLLEEN SLEVIN, AP
    But not all's rosy with organized labor in the Centennial State. Unions are fighting a campaign to turn Colorado into a true right-to-work state - a fight triggered by a failed attempt last year to pass a bill to help unions to organize.

    Backers of the November ballot measure, including Jonathan Coors of the prominent brewing family, want voters to bar unions from collecting dues from nonunion workers they represent. Opponents claim the petition process was flawed and want the state Supreme Court to toss it from the ballot.

    Colorado is the only state in the country that hasn't come down squarely in either the right-to-work camp or the union-friendly side.
