German term or phrase: tarifliche Deckungsrate
No real context, I'm afraid is this is on it's own in a presentation. The presentation is about Employer/employee/union relations.

wage agreement coverage ratio


Explanation:
... is slightly unwieldy but does the job.

(search for "coverage ratio" in the text and look at the hits).

It'd probably be more elegant to say "Percentage of employees/companies covered by collective/wage agreements" but you'd have to know whether they were talking about employees or companies.

or simply "collective/wage agreement coverage".

See

and search for "agreement coverage" - lots of examples.
