Lithuania -Trade unions and employer associations in the food and drink sector -May 07, 2013

The manufacture of food products and beverages has traditionally played a fairly important role in the economy. The sector contributes around 4% of the GDP and employs about 5% of the workforce. Although the sector has several employer associations, none of them has taken the role of the employer or participated in collective bargaining at sectoral level. There is one strong sectoral trade union – the LMP – joining more than 20 large enterprises in the food and drink sector. Collective bargaining coverage in the sector might be equal to approximately 25%.
