Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is my understanding that unions in Germany live quite comfortably, and in a position of strength, compared to, say, the US, or Mexico, or China, or Japan, or the UK, or Australia, or any number of other states.

Greece probably excluded.

In fact, the reason we have no minimum wage in Germany is that unions fought hard to prevent it to be enacted.
