Turning Health Care Into Community Wealth In Cleveland

For 14 years, Olga Jebbison has processed laundry at a plant in Cleveland’s Collinwood neighborhood, on the eastern edge of the city, between the railyards and Lake Erie. She’s one of over a hundred currently employed at the facility, which currently processes 12 million pounds of laundry a year for the Cleveland Clinic. In a major expansion of the company announced today, Evergreen Cooperative Laundry, a 100-percent worker-owned company established in 2009, is taking over management of the Collinwood laundry facility. Jebbison and her Collinwood co-workers will be offered an accelerated path to ownership, potentially becoming full worker-owners of Evergreen Cooperative Laundry in six months.
