Abstract

Der vorliegende Beitrag analysiert die Auswirkungen der innerverbandlichen Heterogenitaet auf die Vertretungswirksamkeit von Arbeitgeberverbaenden. Unter Rueckgriff auf die Daten der Aachener Befragung „Wirtschaftsverbaende in Deutschland 2005/2006“ wird der Frage nachgegangen, wie sich unterschiedliche Aspekte verbandlicher Heterogenitaet auf den Organisationsgrad, die Politikbeeinflussung und den tarifpolitischen Erfolg deutscher Arbeitgeberverbaende auswirken. Die vorgenommene multivariate Analyse zeigt, dass Heterogenitaet unterschiedliche Wirkung entfaltet, je nach dem ob Heterogenitaet auf die Domaenenabgrenzung oder die Mitgliederstruktur bezogen wird. Waehrend sich eine hoehere Homogenitaet der Interessendomaene positiv auf den Organisationsgrad von Arbeitgeberverbaenden auswirkt, findet sich auf der Ebene der Zusammensetzung der Mitgliedschaft eine negative Assoziation zwischen der Homogenitaet und dem Organisationsgrad.
