Draft Worker Cooperative Ordinance

Local governments can be instrumental in fostering the development of worker cooperatives by enacting policies that remove key barriers and incentivize a thriving cooperative economy. Below, you can read SELC's working draft of a sample city ordinance for the promotion of worker cooperatives. We have tried to build upon existing city policies that promote worker cooperatives as well as incentive programs already in place for women and minority owned businesses.

WE would like YOU to join the conversation and give us your feedback. Do you have questions? Suggestions? Constructive criticism? How we can improve the city ordinance? What do you think is politically feasible? What have we left out? Are we asking too much? Too little? Please let us know what you think below the document!
