Today, the German economy and the German trade union landscape are different to what they were a few decades ago. Trade union efforts to integrate and represent migrant workers are now embedded in industries that have experienced radical growth in precarious employment, the rapid weakening of unions, and widespread workforce segmentation of indigenous as well as migrant workers. In this sense, this chapter, as well as highlighting general developments at national level, also explores and examines the marked differences across sectors and unions. It aims to provide an account that explores the dynamics and complex interplay between national employment regimes, the structural characteristics of different sectors and the agency of individual unions.
