We might lack the necessary capital to run this business, and we might fail in the future, but at least we got something.”

It is also used as a personal residence by some of the worker-owners. In March 2003, with the help of the Movimiento Nacional de Empresas Recuperadas (National Movement of Recovered Businesses, MNER), the hotel's former employees occupied the building. While fighting for ownership through activism and negotiation, they began repairs to the building and slowly re-opened business. However, the long term legality of the worker's ownership and operation is ambiguous. In May 2006, Judge Carla Cavaliere officially approved the suspension of the closure order. In June 2009, the hotel served as the Proyecto Sur party headquarters during the legislative election.

Currently under the control of a worker cooperative called "18 de Diciembre", it is among the most famous of the country's "recovered factories". Background[edit] The Brukman factory suffered the effects of the Argentine economic crisis, which first became clearly noticeable as a recession in 1998. Since 1995 business had been shrinking, and Brukman had fired over half of its formerly 300 employees. Sales were dropping and debts had piled up. Takeover[edit] Graffiti near the factory.

Overview[edit] Background[edit] Much of the idea of worker control came in 1977 Youngstown, Ohio when the Youngstown Sheet and Tube company abruptly closed and laid off 5,000 workers.[1] In an effort to stop the layoffs, the workers and city attempted to buy a steel mill and control it themselves. Mondragon Corporation. Workers' self-management. Self-management or workers' self-management (also referred to as labor management, autogestión, workers' control, industrial democracy and producer cooperatives) is a form of management that involves management of an organization by its workers.

Workers' self-management

Self-management is a characteristic of many models of socialism, with proposals for self-management having appeared many times throughout the history of the socialist movement, advocated variously by market socialists, communists and anarchists.[1] There are many variations of self-management. In some variations, all the worker-members manage the enterprise directly through assemblies; in other forms, workers manage indirectly through the appointment of managers through election.
