LUU’s new Co-op is open today, bringing a better shop to you, but also bringing in a partner who shares similar values to ours.
Chris Morris, your Union Affairs Officer, said:
"In Co-op, we believe we’ve found the right people to work with. Not only are they working with us to open the first student-run university campus Co-op in the country, they share our view on “doing the right thing”.
LUU and Co-op both share the same membership, democratic principles, making sure members are at the heart of decision making in what they should do. By working together, students will now be able to have a positive impact on Co-op and make a difference across all their stores, as well as working together to make a difference in the community.
Both LUU and Co-op work for their members and communities in the same way, everything we both make goes straight back to improving the lives of others — For LUU that means making sure you love your time at Leeds, for Co-op that means making sure everything they do supports communities, both locally and around the world."
LUU Union Affairs Officer Chris Morris with Martin Rogers, Head of New Channels at the Co-op.
