As a coop member in rochester, ny and as a person hearing managers of my coop glowing over mondragon i was really happy to find a critique of that system. I found some similar problems with managers/workers relations and it should be know that people who work at the coop are not necessarily member-owners. A good over view of rise of this Coop system in Basque, Spain and some good insight; this book really does a nice job of letting people know how important context is. Pretty good, but not sure how dated the book is. Some of the comments below suggest that. Cheers!
