Cooperative enterprises in industry and services prove their strong resilience to the crisis

23 June 2010 [ English ] français ]

As a response to its concerns regarding the economic crisis and its serious challenges for employment, enterprise sustainability and social cohesion, in 2009 CICOPA (directly and through its regional organisation, CECOP-CICOPA Europe for European concerns) initiated a consultation process amongst its members in order to gain a better idea of the effects of the crisis on the affiliated enterprises. One year after the first consultation, CICOPA launched a new consultation in order to observe changes and the evolution of the situation, as well as to gauge the reaction of worker and social cooperatives. Most CICOPA members have participated in the 2010 consultation.
