On 9 February, the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and the Central Organisation of Industrial Employees in Denmark (CO-industri) struck a deal on a new collective agreement for industry. The agreement extends parental leave with full pay from a total of 13 weeks to 16 weeks. Eight of these weeks will be earmarked for the father, while five will be reserved for the mother and the final three shared between the parents.
