The US Federation of Worker Cooperatives and Democracy at Work Institute are thrilled to announce that the Main Street Employee Ownership Act was signed into law on August 13, 2018.
This webinar celebrates the first legislation in support of employee ownership in over two decades, and the first to explicitly name worker cooperatives as a priority for the SBA.
This is a huge step forward for worker cooperatives, and we are proud to have played a role in making it.
During the webinar, you’ll hear about how our organizations worked with the bill’s author and sponsor, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, informed by our work with worker cooperatives, developers, and allies across the country. We’ll cover the elements of the Main Street Employee Ownership Act, as well as what’s next in bringing this act from law into action.
