Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Belgium [...] happen to be the only ones in which unions are involved in the administration and execution of unemployment insurance.

Well, I did not read that piece and I might be misunderstanding what he means by "being involved in the administration and execution of unemployment insurance" but I think that these are not the only countries. In France, Unedic/Assedic (in charge of collecting social contributions from workers and firms and paying compensation to unemployed) is managed by both unions and employers organization ("partenaires sociaux"). This sounds rather weak as an explanation...
