Abstract

Der Beitrag kontrastiert zwei Gruppen von Beschaeftigten deutscher Betriebe und Dienststellen. Auf der einen Seite solche Personen, die aktuell einem Betriebs- oder Personalrat angehoeren, oder diesem in der Vergangenheit einmal angehoert haben. Auf der anderen Seite Beschaeftigte ohne jegliche Erfahrung als Interessenvertreter. Die vorgenommene Analyse der Daten des Arbeitnehmer – MeinungsMonitor 2008 der Hans-Boeckler-Stiftung zeigt zwar deutliche Unterschiede im Bereich der Gewerkschaftsmitgliedschaft, jedoch geringe oder keine Differenzen bei weiteren erwerbsbiographischen Merkmalen wie Alter, Bildung und Stellung im Beruf. Auch bei politischen Bewertungen und Einschaetzungen im Bereich der Bekaempfung der Arbeitslosigkeit, Entwicklung des Sozialstaates und Bewertung der Mitbestimmung erwiesen sich die Unterschiede zwischen Interessenvertretern und der Vergleichsgruppe als recht gering.
