Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, Enercon is special that way. Sometimes it is quoted that Enercon is also special in fearing industrial espionage if any co-control is allowed to workers; but that doesn't seem to be the main reason.

Three links worth to read in German: profile at Greenpeace where Aloys Wobben expresses his opinion that unions are the main culprit for the downfall of midsize enterprises(...), taz article with examples of union-busting at Enercon (the end of that article claims, without naming names, that other eco-technology leaders think Enercon's practices are damaging the reputation of the whole industry), and another taz article about the firing of 70 employees in Turkey for joining a union (a decision of the local manager the company headquarters refused to comment).
