IUE-CWA Helps CUCI Launch a Manufacturing Initiative

Thanks to the support of IUE-CWA, CUCI launched a Manufacturing Initiative in August aimed at bringing Mondragon-style cooperative ownership to the manufacturing sector in Southwest Ohio, one of the nation’s leading manufacturing hubs.

CUCI will identify opportunities to preserve manufacturing jobs through conversion to worker ownership where the lack of a succession plan puts a company’s future at risk. In addition, CUCI will seek opportunities to incubate new cooperatives where gaps or inconsistencies in the local supply chain leave room for success as a start-up. To read more about this exciting effort, click here.
