Social club: CANTV to work with 40 cooperatives

11 Apr 2008

CANTV expects to sign contracts with around 40 workers’ cooperatives in the next few weeks, reports BNamericas. The cooperatives, formed by CANTV’s own staff, will provide various services to the telco in areas such as local telephony, public payphones and internet access, beginning this June. The cooperatives form part of a wider socialist agenda promoted by CANTV since its re-nationalisation in May 2007. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, in February 2008 the first such organisation to be promoted by the operator – Vetecom – was formed.
