Coalition for Worker Ownership and Power (COWOP)

The Coalition for Worker Ownership and Power (COWOP) is a growing statewide network that aims to bring together worker co-ops and developers, grassroots organizations and labor unions, and funders and investors to resource and coordinate the advancement of a worker ownership movement across Massachusetts.

COWOP launched in March 2019, along with its sister network MASEN (Massachusetts Solidarity Economy Network). We are building towards a formal membership and governance structure with coordination support from the Center for Economic Democracy

Our policy platform has been shaped by research and input from cooperative and grassroots stakeholders across the Commonwealth and support from the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives.

COWOP is coordinated by the Center for Economic Democracy with leadership from the coalition’s Steering Committee.
