Worker ownership is an innovative and proven approach to community wealth building and sustainability.

The movement for worker-owned cooperatives is growing through an expanding ecosystem of groups and organizations. We encourage you to use this inventory of the worker-owned cooperative ecosystem in Massachusetts to learn more about worker-owned cooperatives, make connections and build relationships, and reflect on and strategize around the cooperative movement.

NEW REPORT: “Mapping and Taking Inventory of Massachusetts Cooperative Ecosystems” from UMass Amherst

Inventory of the Worker-Owned Cooperative Ecosystem in Massachusetts

The inventory will be regularly updated to reflect the most current and comprehensive ecosystem as possible; we need your help and invite you to submit additions and corrections through this form. If you have questions or for more information, you can also email us at cooperativeinventoryma@gmail.com 

The inventory as well as the associated report/guide were prepared by students in Anthropology 341 Building Solidarity Economies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst during the Spring of 2022 in collaboration with the Coalition for Worker Ownership and Power.

This guide by the ICA Group (headquartered in Northampton, MA) is a great place to start! We also recommend the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives (USFWC) overview of worker cooperatives.
