Spanish term or phrase: sociedad laboral
Context: "(Lula está a favor...) impulsar en Brasil una normativa tendente a la creación de sociedades laborales o, en su caso, adaptar la legislación cooperativa para dar cabida a modelos similares."
I've found "labour corporation" and "workers' partnerships", which I'm not 100% happy with. It's not really a "collective" or a "cooperative" is it? Any better ideas? Thanks.
