- AGRICULTURAL COOPERATIVES (not
specialized and specialized)
- "OTHER" COOPERATIVES
(they don’t have specialized unions, like
artistan, transportation, consumer ones, etc.)
19.04.2012 in the cooperative registry of the
Cooperative union of Vojvodina the following were registered:
479 agricultural cooperatives and 21
Agricultural cooperatives contain an average of 37
members. Along with founders of a cooperative, the Law of
Cooperatives and Rules of Cooperatives allow individual producers
to become a legal member of a cooperative simply by submitting
and sighing an application form.
It is estimated that there is a large average number of contract
farmers in agricultural cooperatives, approximately 104,
but this number varies significantly depending on many factors
( size of settlement, number of cooperatives in the inhabited
place , service that the cooperative provides to its members,
work efficiency, etc. ).
On the basis of incomplete data in the cooperative’s final
calculus, it is estimated that agricultural cooperatives have
an average of 7 employees, yet,
cooperatives with continual cooperative activity (old cooperatives)
have a larger than average number of employees, while new
cooperatives have minimum labour (1
employees). In many new cooperatives there are virtually no
employees , where as even the director doesn’t hold a permanent
position and carries out his job either part-time or voluntarily.
