Resource Work Cooperative is a not for profit workers cooperative. Our workers are our members and so are responsible for the strategy, decision making and direction of the cooperative. We do this through monthly General Meetings that operate through consensus decision making.
Resource is committed to inclusivity in our shop and workplace.
