CWCF Emergency Relief: Supports to Worker Co-operatives re: Covid-19

We have been monitoring the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our members closely, and it has become clear in recent weeks many worker co-operatives will need support to recover or continue their operations during and after the pandemic.  We are already aware of various changes:  some members are far busier than before but without any additional resources; others have seen their sales plummet or disappear.  Everyone is living in significant uncertainty, and it’s unclear how long it will take for federal or other supports to reach our members.  Therefore we are announcing three support levers, for which CWCF already has the structure and resources in place, which will allow us to support worker co-ops in the short term. Read about the supports. (Note: these supports have continued into 2021, except for $10 Solidarity dues, which have been increased to $50).
