Workers.coop, a “self-organising collective with big plans”, is running events in Bristol and London as part of a series that aims to “raise awareness, get feedback and start organising” in its mission to build a new national federation of worker-led co-ops.
Workers.coop aims to develop industry networks, provide advice in an agile way and make worker co-op options available to new sectors and young workers in particular, with an orientation to the social justice movement. You are invited to get involved at this crucial start-up stage.
“We are building a new federation of worker led co-ops, to motivate, educate and organise workers. With plans to bring together the 400+ existing worker co-ops in the UK and anyone else interested in growing this movement. So more people have control over and benefit fully from their own hard work.
“There are a series of events taking place around the UK and online through fortnightly webinars. They aim to raise awareness, get feedback and start organising. So come along to find out what we are up to and how you can get involved in shaping the future of this new organisation.”
The Bristol event, which CAN is helping to organise, takes place at The Chocolate Factory, Centrespace Gallery, 6 Leonard Lane, Bristol BS1 1EA on 23 November from 7pm to 9pm. For more information and to book visit the workers.coop site.
The London event will be at Space 4, 113-115 Fonthill Road, Finsbury Park, London N4 3HH on 28 November from 9:00am to 12:00noon. Go here for more information and to book.
The events are free, but donations are appreciated to help cover the cost of the venue and refreshments.
