Employee Co-operative Council Elections

Interested in representing your worker co-operative and influencing Co-operatives UK? Why not nominate yourself for a seat on the Employee Co-operative Council (Representative body for worker co-operatives).

There are 3 places up for grabs this year and we are always interested in new people getting involved. Remember we are a member owned organisation like any other co-operative and we are what you make us.

Main benefits to you and your Co-op
  • Provides an insight into the work of Co-operatives UK and an opportunity to directly influence policy and strategic direction.
  • An excellent opportunity for your co-operative to raise its profile and network with other co-operatives; sectors and international co-operative movements.
  • For the individual, it is great opportunity to increase your knowledge and experience of worker co-operatives and the wider movement.
  • Out of pocket expenses and loss of earnings contributions paid by Co-operatives UK.
