CFL focuses on helping to develop cooperatives that focus on fair wages, safe working conditions, and respect for the environment. Under the auspices of their Adult Employment Program, CFL has partnered with community members and incubated eight worker cooperatives and one collective since June 2006. CFL’s work has received recognition by Speaker Christine Quinn, the GEO Collective, and the United Nations 2012 Year of the Cooperatives. In 2012 with the assistance of NY City Council we began to train Community Based Organizations to develop a cooperative incubation program at their respective sites.
This position provides an excellent opportunity to get involved with cooperative development, and continue to build what is already a robust and growing movement in NYC. For more information, you can download the job description here: Cooperative Developer Job Description June 2014.
