Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives

The Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives (NoBAWC - pronounced "No Boss") is a network of worker cooperatives dedicated to building workplace democracy in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1]

NoBAWC was founded in September 1994 when workers representing nine worker cooperatives met to address their isolation and to build a worker cooperative movement in the region. Twelve years later, NoBAWC comprises over 30 dues-paying workplaces with a paid staff. NoBAWC is a member of the United States Federation of Worker Cooperatives.
