The first permanent trade unions emerged after 1870 from educational and support associations, i. H. after the enactment of the constitutional constitution granting all citizens freedom of assembly and association (1867) as well as the coalition law of 1870, which allowed strikes and the support of strikers. The trade unions only became more important in 1893 with the establishment of the Provisional Commission of the Austrian Trade Unions, the first umbrella organization oriented towards social democracy. The characteristic of the Austrian trade union movement in the first third of the 20th century was its fragmentation into unions of direction. In addition to the dominant social democratic-socialist federation of free trade unions in Austria, which (1929) comprised 48 member organizations with around 737,000 members, significant were the Christian (Catholic) trade unions, which had been grouped together in the Central Commission of Christian Trade Unions in Austria since 1906 and (1929) had 22 member organizations with around 108,000 members. In addition, there were employee associations, ethnic and business-peaceful organizations. After the free trade unions were dissolved (1934) by the authoritarian corporate state regime of E. Dollfuss was formed in 1934 the “unified trade union” under the leadership of Christian trade unionists, which in turn was replaced in 1938 by the German Labor Front (DAF). The free and Christian trade unionists, who were equally persecuted after 1938 and who had fought heavily in the interwar period, formed the Austrian Trade Union Confederation (ÖGB)together with communist trade union officials in 1945.
All collective bargaining agreements are subject to the control of the Joint Commission for Wages and Prices (in short: Joint Commission, founded in 1957), which is an essential institution within the economic and social partnership in Austria by representatives of the ÖGB and the Federal Chamber of Labor (BAK) on the one hand and the Austrian Chamber of Commerce and the President’s Conference of the Chambers of Agriculture, on the other hand, has an equal number of representatives on both sides. The cooperation of employer organizations and ÖGB with government members (the latter without voting rights) in the Joint Commission, The high degree of union organization and the close personal ties and programmatic affinity between the socialist faction in the ÖGB and the SPÖ as well as between the Christian trade union faction and the ÖVP give the ÖGB numerous opportunities to influence economic and social policy, among other things. Areas of politics. The number of members of the ÖGB with its seven individual trade unions is around 1.2 million.
