Organized Labor: New Models For A New Economy | New Economy Coalition Webinar
March 13, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This New Economy Coalition webinar seeks to highlight the work of two groups pioneering exciting new labor organizing models that offer exciting approaches to the unique challenges of our time. The Freelancers Union is the nation’s largest group representing the growing independent workforce. The union’s 230,000 members are building collective solutions to our economic challenges — from creating affordable benefits to connecting for mutual aid. 1worker1vote.org is a national organization advancing union co-ops, a model that elegantly combines the democratic and entrepreneurial spirit of worker cooperatives with the political muscle, legacy, and resources of traditional labor unions. This model has been pioneered in Cincinnati through the Cincinnati Union Cooperative Initiative, a project jointly launched by a historic agreement between Spain’s Mondragon Corporation and the United Steelworkers.
- Dan Lavoie and Caitlin Pearce of Freelancers Union
