Ron Gettelfinger, who was reelected to no one's surprise as president of the United Auto Workers (UAW) last month, will also be joining the DaimlerChrysler supervisory board as well. Gettelfinger is replacing UAW Vice President Nate Gooden who is stepping down from the board.
In Germany, such boards represent the shareholders and have duties such as selecting managers and supporting company decisions. The German union IG Metall, which is a board member, has traditionally offered one of its seats to the UAW.

      It is a supervisory board, not an advisory board and yes it is very very common in germany.
