Solidarity values – in the broad sense of a supportive attitude between members and as regards environment, whether it be natural or human – are the basis of this balance of the "fair price" which is always difficult to set; the fair price must be able to please consumers, wage earners and collectivity alike. But we know that management choices always leave an important part to collective involvement.
Transparency between their members is a strong incentive for everyone and particularly for the managers, although it may prove painful sometimes.
Along with the cemented relationship between people, represented by their skilfulness, these values are the key of the durability of our institutions. It is only in the light of durability that we can assess the effectiveness and significance of co-operative values.
One century, even 130 years for some of them…is it long enough to be convinced of it?
