    I think Corker and Haslam, and the rest of the TN "Right to Work"/GOP crowd grasp the concept of management/labor cooperation just fine. They understand it, and still fight it tooth and nail for domestic ideological reasons. The "success" of the "German corporate model" is less than irrelevant to these folks (easily dismissible as foreign socialistical foreign-ness): their priority is to maintain as much political and managerial power for their donor base as possible. And since ANY sort of worker empowerment threatens that regime, they'll try to fight any sort or level of union enablement to the last. Regardless of the consequences (which they, of course, will never have to face)...
