EPSU sends solidarity to Lithuanian unions campaigning against the new Labour Code

(8 September 2016) Unions in Lithuania are continuing their campaign against the new Labour Code. They have organised another protest on 10 September and in the mean time EPSU has sent a letter of protest to the Prime Minister, members of the government and MPs. Over the summer the new Code was blocked by President Dalia Grybauskaite and EPSU agrees with her position that the proposed Labour Code will lead to an increase in precarious employment, particularly for younger workers. EPSU hopes that the forthcoming protest on 10 September will be widely supported and will send a clear message to parliament that the new Code should be rejected.
