A worker cooperative is defined under Section 4 of R.A. 9520 as “one organized by workers, including the self-employed, who are at the same time the members and owners of the enterprise. Its principal purpose is to provide employment and business opportunities to its members and manage it in accordance with cooperative principles.”
Global Skills Providers Multi-Purpose Cooperative or Global Pro, is one such cooperative. It is made up of self-employed workers, and which subscribes to the universal principles of the co-operative movement in general, and the ideals of the International Co-operative Alliance (ICA) and the CICOPA, in particular.
Global Pro was established in July 2005 by a group of visionaries led by its Chairman, ALEJANDRO “Butch” LUKBAN, who believes that “social entrepreneurship holds the promise of more effectively addressing if not solving some of society’s most intractable social problems, including poverty and unemployment.”
