This study analyses the effectiveness of trade-unions based on their effect on work-life balance in ten EU member states. This is done through a set of metrics: paternity leave, parental leave, flexible work arrangements, long-term care, economic incentives, childcare and other measures. While it highlights the general effectiveness of these measures it warns that they are the first to be dropped in a crisis. Further recommendations for good practice are also given.
