Why Join?

Membership is the cornerstone of cooperatives: members own their cooperative, members control and run it, and members reap the benefits. Membership is also the basic unit of participation in the USFWC: as a grassroots member-led movement, our membership is our power and our strength.

We welcome membership from worker cooperatives, other democratic workplaces, cooperative developers, allied organizations and individual supporters. Learn more about member classes.
