Earthworker cooperates for solar hot water

A workers’ cooperative plans to start a worker-run solar hot water system factory in Morwell, Victoria. Called Earthworker, they have set out to raise funds for this cooperative by finding 100,000 members.

Earthworker aims to boost local employment in sustainable manufacturing training and jobs in Australia as well as providing further support to workers by assisting with education, housing, childcare and other social services.

Income from Earthworker will be used to encourage enterprise bargaining agreements benefitting workers and to invest in research, grow the business and fund social justice initiatives.
