 Trade union membership losses increased in 2003
According to figures from the Confederation of German Trade Unions (Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund, DGB), total membership of its affiliated trade unions fell to 7.4 million in 2003, a decline of close to 337,000 or 4.4% compared with 2002.
As some trade unions do not give gender-disaggregated data for their retired members, the figures in column 2 and 3 do not necessarily add up to the total figures given in column 5.
Trade unions find it difficult to compensate for these losses by expanding into other sectors, especially in private sector services where the predominance of small businesses make it difficult to establish an organised workplace presence, eg by way of setting up a works council.
