[Editor's note: readers may recognize Jonny from the ICCM panel we shared at the beginning of this month, entitled Accelerating Worker Ownership. Here, he introduces several of the 29 cooperative projects that the Union Cooperative Initiative is involved with, and discusses the shared services that UCI provides for member co-ops.]


At the June 2023 meeting of the USFWC's Union Co-ops Council, Jonny Sopotiuk presented on the Union Cooperative Initiative (UCI), an exciting project out of Vancouver, BC founded in 2021. Jonny shares about the history of the UCI, its co-ops and prospects, their strategies, and how the union co-op model is proving successful.
