Co-operatives UK launches a new edition of its worker cooperative code of governance

7 December 2012 [ English ] français ]

In 2006, a group of experienced UK worker cooperators explained how to use the cooperative principles to create good cooperative businesses. In 2012, Co-operatives UK has updated this code, to help people create and defend decent jobs, with a culture of equality and respect at work, where people benefit fairly from their own labour and take collective control of their working lives.

The code provides an introduction to the cooperative principles, governance and management structures, combined with lively graphics. It was developed by people that have created a cooperative and share the same values. This booklet will help worker owned cooperatives run their business well, providing a guide to good governance and management based on the principles of cooperatives. This worker cooperative code can also inspire and guide other international experiences.
