Interested in learning more about worker-owned cooperatives? Here are some websites we recommend. The first two have extensive compilations of resources links:
U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives has extensive resource pages for both introductory and technical information about worker cooperatives.
Arizmendi Association of Cooperatives, a network of worker-owned cooperative bakeries, has a good compilation of links to information about cooperatives.
Mondragon Cooperative Corporation, based in the Basque region of Spain, is the headquarters organization of the world’s largest network of worker-owned cooperatives. Mondragon’s cooperatives have over 85,000 workers, generate approximately $18 billion in annual sales, and demonstrate that there is a practical democratic alternative to corporations as we know them.
