Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Cincinnati Union Co-op Initiative Celebration 12/1

Join us as we celebrate the continued success and journey of Cincinnati Union Co-op Initiative and Union Cooperatives!

Since 2012, CUCI has launched four cooperative initiatives, investigated three others, created 20 jobs and leveraged over $3 million in grants and loans. Some highlights from 2016:

  • Our Harvest employed 15 people, served as a practicum site for 20 students, held a memorable event and wrote an inspiring book to celebrate the Bahr Farm’s centennial anniversary
  • Sustainergy saved over 100 homeowners, on an average, $600 to $700 per household in utility savings
  • Apple Street Market completed a 10-year financial projection that demonstrates its viability and is well on its way to closing the funding gap
  • Renting Partnerships, organized as a land trust, supports efforts around the country to share its innovative approach to wealth building for low-income renters
  • CUCI launched its manufacturing initiative, which aims to bring Mondragon-style cooperative ownership to the manufacturing sector in Southwest Ohio as a succession strategy for retiring business owners
