An Interview with VALU CO-OP Co-founders
In episode #396 of Talking Radical Radio, Scott Neigh interviews Jonny Sopotiuk and Zandi Dandizette. They are founding members of both the Vancouver Artists Labour Union Co-operative (VALU CO-OP), a workplace owned and run democratically by its workers, and the Arts and Cultural Workers Union (ACWU). They talk about how this new model for artists and other cultural workers to organize themselves — a worker co-op and a union — may be the key to challenging precarious work and poverty in the sector.
