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

  • Cath Muller - Footprint workers co-ops  (elected to Board of Directors)
  • Ross Hodgson – Suma (elected to Board of Directors)
  • Mike Rudge - Delta-T Devices

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.

Get involved

The 2021 election cycle has begun with four seats up for grabs on the Worker Co-op Council. Any individuals from worker co-op members of Co-operatives UK can stand for election. Information on standing for election has been sent out to members.
