German term or phrase: Bevollmächtigter MK
This is from a semi-legal text about a works council meeting. Present at the meeting were the following people:

-Frau V, Sachverständige
-Herr W. 1. Bevollmächtigter MK
-Herr X, Gewerkschaftssekretär
-Herr Y, EBR-Beauftragter
-Herr Z, Rechtsbeistand

Perhaps my brain hasn't started working yet, but I can't work out what "Bevollmächtigter MK" means.

Any ideas out there?

Just a guess - could MK be Mitglied der Kommission or whatever it's called?

Guess this is prob. no good, as bet they\'re using Betriebsrat. I had a works council transl. recently but it was for CH and they used a different word....
