In corporate governance, codetermination (also "copartnership" or "worker participation") is the practice of workers of an enterprise having the right to vote for representatives on the board of directors in a company. It also refers to staff having binding rights in work councils on issues in their workplace. The practice of board level representation is widespread in developed democracies.   Some labor and auto experts say that if the VW plant in Chattanooga gets a works council, it would create pressure to do likewise at the BMW plant in Spartanburg, S.C., and the Mercedes-Benz plant.

Addison, Claus Schnabel, Thorsten Schank published in: Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik,(5), Works Councils, Labor Productivity and Plant Heterogeneity: Evidence from Quantile Regressions∗ Using quantile regressions and a rich cross section data set for German manufacturing plants, this paper reports that the impact of works councils on labor productivity varies along the conditional distribution of value added per by: works councils: establishment labor productivity, as measured by average value added labor productivity and plant heterogeneity book employee.

A standard approach has been to estimate a single-equation model with productivity as the dependent variable and a set of factors that are related to productivity (e.g., Works councils of skilled employees, hours worked per week, etc.).

No productivity effects of works councils are found for the service sector and in manufacturing plants not covered by collective bargaining. Besides demonstrating that it is important to look at evidence based on more than one data set, our empirical findings point to the efficacy of supplementing OLS with quantile regression estimates when investigating the behavior of heterogeneous plants.
