The Community and Worker Ownership Project (CWOP) supports efforts percolating around the nation and New York City focused on worker-owned cooperatives, economic democracy, and community planning. In this age of burgeoning inequality and pervasive challenges to political and workplace democracy, this project supports projects in worker participation and control, as well as grassroots leadership in community development in collaboration with a broad array of organizational stakeholders, including unions, worker centers, community-based organizations, businesses and worker cooperatives.
CWOP pursues these aims through:
The Worker Coop Resource Guide for Skills and Services, created in the summer of 2017, is a catalogue that represents many of the resources in our city-wide collaboration, facilitated by the New York City Network of Worker Cooperatives (NYCNOWC) and the CUNY’s School of Labor & Urban Studies.
