Are the unions far less political than ours then? It does sound like the agreements are wider (job wise), which might mean less incentive to strike.

Reading a bit more sectoral bargaining in Germany is far from comprehensive, and dropping fast. Seems to be concentrated either in the public sector, which is largely already sectoral bargaining here due to centralisation, or large scale primary and manufacturing companies, which we don’t have a lot of (or are happy without - would our car workers want to lose their company deals?)
It is also rarely compulsory for the companies to obey the deals if they aren’t in the trade association negotiating.
