Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The german labour law - especially collective bargaining law - tends to work generally.

It depends on unions strong enough to threaten a strike, that much is true.

The weakening of unions tend to show the flaws not visible with stronger unions.

That is also the reason that the weaker unions first supported a state minimum wage: the stronger unions could still pretend that in their sector everything is well.

That said I think in the end all collective bargaining rests on the ability of the unions to go on strike.
