Sun Certified Builders Co-op is the first multi-stakeholder worker co-operative in Manitoba. We offer two levels of membership:
The worker member is an employee of the co-op that receives an hourly wage, can serve as a board member or director and is paid a share of surplus earned by the co-op based on the members hours contributed during the fiscal year. Our by-laws require that 50% of surplus after expenses shall be paid back to worker members. The remaining 50% shall stay with the co-operative to cover operational costs until such time as a member quits, retires, or is let go, in which case the members remaining share is paid out. Sun Certified requires a one year probationary period for all potential worker members. A worker membership is $1000.
The supporting member is a person interested in supporting the co-op model or the energy efficient building sector in Manitoba. Supporting members may serve on the board of directors as one board seat is dedicated to the supporting membership. A supporting member may attend all board meeting and influence the business through participation in board decisions and activities including committees. A supporting membership is $50.
