The Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy

The Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy has been held roughly every two years since 2002.  It started during the organizing drive for a national federation in the early 2000s and has become one of the primary assemblies of worker cooperative members, supporters, and new recruits to the movement.  Here are some reports from the conference's board, staff and attendees from over the years.
