Episode 27 – Mondragon (with Michael Peck)

In this episode I discuss Mondragon, the worlds largest cooperative corporation, with US Delegate Michael Peck. Since 2000, Michael has served as the North American delegate for Mondragon, the world’s largest industrial worker cooperative with USA 2013 sales at the $250 million level.  On March 26th, 2012, the United Steelworkers Union (USW – North America’s largest manufacturing union), Mondragon, and the Ohio Employee Ownership Center (OEOC) announced the union-coop template to create worker-owner hybrid projects and businesses with the goal of revamping U.S. manufacturing through worker empowerment and ownership.

In January 2014, Michael helped to launch the nonprofit 1worker1vote.org, dedicated to solving America’s unhealthy and unequal opportunity, mobility, and wealth divides through broad-based, equal share worker ownership. This movement is now operating in more than 11 U.S. municipalities in varying development stages.
