Worker Cooperatives as a Response to the Crisis: by Pierre Laliberté

In this article, Pierre Laliberte highlights the virtues of worker cooperatives as these are run by workers themselves. Laliberte notes, however, that they do not proliferate as quickly as their more conventional competitors and their collaboration with trade unions remains limited. He concludes that in the current environment of low trust for “conventional capitalist governance”, cooperatives should be given a fair chance to prove that workers can “run the show themselves”.
