Worker Coops v Employee Ownership
Maybe worth a discussion about the recent proliferation of employee ownership trusts and their promotion.
Broadly, I can see them as a kind of 'better' alternative to trad business organising, but am finding myself becoming more and more mystified as to why they get roped together with worker co-ops (and indeed dominate the 'start a worker coop' page on the coops uk website - bizarre).
Do we have any resources that can be pushed as an alternative to employers who want to hand over the keys? Presumably with furlough ending soon there may well be a deluge of companies that may find worker co-op conversion appealing.
Maybe we need to have something in place to counter all of this employee ownership cash/propaganda?
Is there something already in place?
