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

... 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".

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