This is the first of 2021's bimonthly Union Co-ops Council public spaces to discuss the need for collaboration between the worker cooperative movement and labor unions. In this session, we will learn about the history of unionized cooperatives, and how labor unions can benefit from partnering with and incubating worker co-ops.
We hope you can make it!
