    contain or constitute? or form?

    Hi, I wonder is it correct to say that: "The three largest unions now contain 60% of ÖGB membership" meaning that the three union make 60% of all members of the ÖGB trade union confederation? It seems to me that in this case rather ÖGB contains the three unions, doesn't it?
    Thank you.

    I usually use "account for" or "make up".

    Not a teacher.
