This paper looks at problems faced by worker co-ops and ways to deal with them. It presents the merits of increased worker participation in workplace organisation and the potential for growth in the worker co-op sector. It analyses various ownership models, the role of trade unions and government in worker co-op development, and issues of finance, management and marketing.
