Building opportunity, mobility,
and income for every single worker.
1worker1vote is a resource for workers and businesses interested in creating union co-op business models.
We're supporting the development of a national ecosystem where shared ownership is the new norm. We'd love to speak to anyone interested in overcoming the structural inequalities of opportunity, mobility, and income.
What we Do
We're great connectors with a solid track record of bringing together the solidarity of unions, the business skills of cooperative owners, and the strength of a like-minded network. This is the key to job creation, shared investment opportunities, and worker-ownership.

What Are Union Co-ops All About?
A union co-op is a for-profit business owned and directed by workers. Union co-ops operating under the Mondragon principles make sure no worker community – organized, unorganized, or alternative – is left behind.
What are "Mondragon Principles"?
The thinking behind 1:1 is based on Mondragon principles of business. These include:
- growing equal share equity for workers
- inspiring greater solidarity
- building strong and equitable local economies
