Why do we need a union, aren’t there other tenants associations and numerous initiatives?

That’s true, in Berlin there exist tenants associations with a very large membership base on the one hand, and on the other there is a broad landscape of activist initiatives. We value a union for tenants as a useful and long overdue addition to create a platform for long-term organization and exchange of tenants and activists, as well as to fight collectively for the rights of tenants and to push our demands foreword.
