Abstract

This article examines legal inhibitions on the right to strike which have emerged in the new market economy of Lithuania. It illustrates how legal impediments impact on the right to strike by analyzing a specific episode of industrial conflict. Further to this, the complaint by the employees' trade union to the International Labor Organization is examined together with the legislative responses of Lithuanian authorities to concerns arising from this dispute. The paper suggests that a broader political imperative of labor market liberalization may be compromising the spirit, if not the letter, of both major ILO conventions on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining which are endorsed in the new Lithuanian Labor Code, and also the European Union Charter of Fundamental Rights to which Lithuania has subscribed.
