    Die industriellen Beziehungen werden auf der betrieblichen Ebene bisher vornehmlich aus der Perspektive der betrieblichen Interessenvertretungen oder deren Beziehung zum Management analysiert, waehrend die Perspektive der abhaengig Beschaeftigten mehr oder weniger vernachlaessigt wird. Diese Forschungsluecke wird mit diesem Beitrag gefuellt, indem in einer repraesentativen Befragung von abhaengig Beschaeftigten in Deutschland deren Erwartungen an betriebliche Interessenvertretungen erhoben wurden. Dabei wird folgender Forschungsfrage nachgegangen: Wie lassen sich diese Erwartungen abhaengig Beschaeftigter an betriebliche Interessenvertretungen anhand bestimmter sozialer Milieus klassifizieren’ Die Frage wird durch Clusterbildung von fuenf Erwartungen und deren Kombination sowie durch eine Sozialstrukturanalyse eines jeden Clusters beantwortet. (In the past, research on industrial relations has been conducted primarily from the perspective of works councils and their relations to the management, whereas the perspective of the employees has been more or less neglected. With the help of a representative survey of German employees we will answer the following research question: How can the employee expectations regarding works councils be classified by means of social milieus’ We answer the research question by conducting a cluster analysis regarding five different expectations and their combination. Moreover, we analyze the corresponding groups in each case.)
