If you are interested in learning more about worker cooperatives and would like to get involved in our efforts please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, August 7 from 7-8:30 at Cafe Sazon (4704 Columbia Pike). At the meeting, we will explain what we've done so far and brainstorm our next steps.
If you are new to the concept of worker cooperatives, here are some short articles to read before the meeting so that we can start from a common foundation.
1) Intro to coops:
2) On the Evergreen coops:
3) Union coops:
These articles will give you a good idea of what other localities are doing and the different models we are considering.
We hope to see you on August 7.
