Cincinnati Union Co-op Initiative (CUCI) is a non-profit that partners with individuals and organizations to create worker-owned businesses that sustain families. CUCI emerged from the historic partnership between Mondragon, the world’s most successful network of worker-cooperatives, and the United Steelworkers in October of 2009. Here in Cincinnati, like so many other parts of this country, the need to create jobs is paramount. Families and neighborhoods across our region are struggling with high rates of long-term unemployment. For these individuals, solutions offered by public and private sectors are scarce and inadequate. These workers and the families and communities they support need and deserve not just a job, but a career path that provides a family sustaining wage, benefits, essential training, and effectively diminishes barriers to long-term employment. Learn about the recent initiatives that CUCI has been working on in the community! website: https://www.cincinnatiunioncoop.org/
