Solidarity Economies: Worker Co-ops

  • The Murphy Isntitute 25 West 43rd St, 18th Floor New York 10036 USA (map)

The local movement of worker cooperatives, supported by the City Council, has increasingly caught the imagination of workers and organizers.  What is the potential and what are the limitations of worker co-ops in building a movement for economic and social justice? To what extent does the co-op model enable working people to create secure jobs with decent pay and dignity, and, in doing so, begin to envision a new economy?  What is the nature of organized labor’s role in this new movement?

Speakers : Amy B. Dean, Roger Green, Adria Powell, Missy Risser
