Workers Council is a group of Winona ORC clients that are elected by their peers to represent the entire workforce. They work together to discuss working conditions, create events, and raise money for chosen charities.  Each June, new members are elected and sit on the council for two years. Regular meetings are held once a month.

Workers Council raises money through can collections, vending machines, bake sales, and other small activities throughout the year. Thanks to the generosity of Winona ORC staff and clients, Workers Council is able to donate over a thousand dollars annually to several worthy causes. In addition, the Council hosts special events including an annual Halloween Party. They also sponsor the Employee of the Month award, giving recognition to employees (clients) for outstanding job performance.
