Autonomy and solidarity for Mondragon’s coops

Work Together, the e-newsletter published by CICOPA (the international federation of workers’ and producer cooperatives), is always worth a look and the latest edition arrives in my inbox this morning. Among other stories there’s one about the Mondragon Corporation’s moves to discuss how the cooperative federation should in future combine autonomy and self-management for its individual constituent cooperatives with federation-wide solidarity between the coops. This is an important discussion, one which has relevance outside the particular context of Mondragon.

On close reading, CICOPA’s story is simply a report of the Mondragon conference last December which I covered myself in a blog here on Dec 17th.  But it has reminded me that I need to continue to monitor the discussions at Mondragon. I’ll let you know here as and when I find out more.

One thought on “Autonomy and solidarity for Mondragon’s coops

  1. The CICOPA story refers to a document that Mondragon has been using in their discussions. Do you have a copy of it?
