Worker Co-op Council

Two people chatting in an office

The Worker Co-operative Council shapes strategic priorities for worker co-operative and employee owned members of Co-operatives UK and acts as a sounding board on important issues.

The council meets four times a year and is elected by and from worker co-op members. The Council in turn nominates two representatives to the main Board of Co-operatives UK. It is one of our member groups.

  • Cath Muller - Footprint workers co-ops  (elected to Board of Directors)
  • Ross Hodgson – Suma (elected to Board of Directors)
  • Mike Rudge - Delta-T Devices
  • Debbie Clarke – Unicorn Grocery
  • Sion Whellens – Calverts
  • Aaron Hirtenstein - Agile Collective
  • Tatiana Baskakova - Ceramics Art Studio
  • Kayleigh Walsh - Outlandish Co-operative (co-opted)
  • Ieva Padagaite - Blake House Filmmakers Co-operative (co-opted)

Worker Co-op Code

The Worker Co-operative Code sets out what members of a worker co-operative should expect and work together to achieve.

It has been created by the Worker Co-op Council 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.
