Post annual review season, post annual dividend, I found myself this morning writing three e-mails to senior management within the Weaver Street Market Co-operative about double standards, and the angst this is causing within our co-op.

I'm not going to go into details at this stage. Save to say this. To the WSM corporate office.

Last year, nineteen worker-owners expressed their displeasure with the way things were going in our co-op, by voting for the democracy candidate.

This year, ninety-five worker-owners felt the need to demonstrate their concern, by voting for the two democracy candidates.

Again, 95 of the 220 registered worker-owners voted against the incumbent Worker-Owner Director, who received only 22 votes.

For the first time in years, both the incumbent Consumer-Owner Director and the incumbent Worker-Owner Director were deposed, each coming last out of three candidates.

People in the WSM corporate office, wake up. There is a lot of anger in our co-op. If you don't start including, that anger is going to start expressing itself in unhealthy ways.
