A Union Co-op is a fully unionised, worker co-operative, owned and controlled by those who work in it.

Trade unions are at the heart of this idea: a union co-op offers the potential for a 100% unionised workforce, with the union an essential part of the co-op governance. The union co-op model can deliver improved wages and other terms and conditions by eliminating the top slicing that’s commonly seen in capitalist enterprises.
