§ 1088. Net earnings or losses; apportionment, distribution, and payment
(a) The net earnings or losses of a worker cooperative shall be apportioned and distributed at such times and in such manner as the articles of association or bylaws shall specify. Net earnings declared as patronage allocations with respect to a period of time, and paid or credited to members, and net losses allocated to members with respect to a period of time shall be apportioned among the members in accordance with the ratio which each member's patronage during the period involved bears to total patronage by all members during that period.
(b) The apportionment, distribution, and payment of net earnings required by this section may be in cash, credits, written notices of allocation, or capital stock issued by the worker cooperative. (Added 1985, No. 46, § 1.)
