Mondragon the Working Cooperative
Danny Roberts Business & Ethics
What is a worker co-operative?
A worker co-operative is a business that is owned and controlled by its employees. Each worker owns a share in the business. Decisions as to how the business is run are made democratically by the co-operative system of one member - one vote. Common forms of worker co-ops include Mondragon and The US-Thai.
How do worker co-ops form?
Worker co-operatives generally form in one of two ways. Either a group of people organises a co-operative to create employment for themselves, or an existing company mutualises by selling shares to its employees, who then take over ownership and management.
What is mondragon?
The Mondragon Corporacion Cooperativa (MCC) begin here in 1956 when a group of five young engineers were encouraged by their socialist priest, Father Jose Maria Arizmediarrieta, to set up a cooperative to make paraffin cooking stoves. Using Arizmis vision the five young students built a financial base for the MCC in the Basque region of Spain.
