This IG Metall union was responsible for a bunch of other industries as well in Germany. They were the union for the car industry, electrical industry, machine engineering. You could end up being their responsibility with a white collar job as well like design engineer. I'm not sure about this, but I think you could also end up with them for stuff like doing some office job about logistics, purchasing, sales if it was for a business in one of their industries.
Also, the way things seem to be organized in Germany, unions are like some sort of official and regulated thing. When I tried to look things up, it seemed like there are rules that make stuff happen automatically, and a business and employees are automatically involved with a certain union if part of a certain industry, and the whole industry ends up with that one union.
