The LUCOOP project that we participated in, which brought together a group of academics with interests in cooperation and cooperatives, along with some cooperative practitioners, with some in both camps, produced as one project output a set of three booklets looking at different aspects of organising. Under the banner of 'Re-organise' the booklets look at Power, Strategy, and Governance. Get your copies from https://www.dogsection.org/product/re-organise-power

Design and printing co-op Calverts in east London is looking for a finance worker-bookkeeper/office administrator, part time 21 hours flexible http://bit.ly3GMExGS and a full time 35 hours production coordinator http://bit.ly/3VmYyb6 - please spread the word!
But if you look you will see these rates are based on a 35 (not 40) hour week, so more than £19 per hour before tax/NI - which is certainly not a 'pittance'. And £35,000 a year would be regarded as a good wage in much 'mainstream' employment as far as I'm aware.
