According to the latest figures from the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB), the combined membership level of its affiliated trade unions declined by 0.1% in 2012. Compared to previous years this meant that the overall consolidation continued. Four out of eight affiliates, among them the metalworkers’ union IG Metall the largest DGB union, increased membership in 2012. Others, most notably the rail- and the construction workers, only managed to slow a downward trend.
