Abstract [en]

This chapter describes first, the economic contours of the crisis in the Baltic States , taking into account the differences between each country. Second, the various governmental crisis-response measures are outlined, and the key question is posed: how is it possible to sustain an accord between capital and labour, given the scale of sacrifices imposed on the latter? To answer this, the third part of the chapter, overviews existing arrangements for social dialogue and the structure and density of trade union organisation in the post-communist era. Fourth, the responses of organised labour to governmental policy are discussed. It is suggested that after initial potentially destabilising opposition, the trade unions have increasingly come to accept a revival of previous neo-corporatist compromise arrangements.
