Worker Owned Cooperatives
Expanding worker owned businesses: This movement is much broader and deeper than most people realize and the continued expansion of employee-owned businesses, especially unionized businesses, can help advance better paying jobs and democratic principles in the workplace.
Currently the APA Economics group is working to get a resolution to the Arvada City Council to support and recognize the benefits of Employee Owned Businesses. Our long term goal is help get a few worker co-ops started in Arvada or nearby municipalities.
We will also work to increase awareness and support for worker owned cooperatives with the public and the state legislature.
