The majority of trade unions were in favor of the government’s proposal to raise the minimum monthly wage by 88 euros, or 13.7 percent, to 730 euros. However, employers opposed the proposal and reproached the government for modifying its previous proposal without consulting the Council.

Some representatives of trade unions also stated that there was no more sense in holding discussions in the Council.

Vytautas Silinskas, Deputy Minister of Social Security and Labor, told the Council that, following the proposed increase, the net minimum wage would amount to 518 euros, compared to 500 euros in Latvia, 546 euros in Estonia, 130 euros in Russia, and 110 euros in Belarus.

Should the Tripartite Council fail to reach a consensus, the final decision will be made by the government.
