Lithuania -Proposed new labour code attacks workers’ rights September 11, 2015

Trade unions organised a rally on 10 September to protest against the new draft Labour Code, which will be debated in Parliament this month. The proposed Labour Code, amongst others, would lower wages by no longer paying overtime, while simultaneously requiring employees to work mandatory overtime. The law raises the maximum weekly working hours to 60 hours per week and makes it easier as well as cheaper for employers to fire workers.
