Research output: Non-textual formBlog Post


Codetermination – worker participation in management, also referred to as Mitbestimmung – forms part of the industrial relations traditions of a number of European countries. Among these, the German system of parity codetermination (paritätische Mitbestimmung), first introduced in the iron and steel industries in 1947 by the British Military Government, provides the greatest level of involvement for workers, by allowing for equal representation of employees and management on the supervisory boards of companies, in certain industries, above specific size thresholds.
