Who we are
The Baltic Sea Labour Network (BSLN) is built upon national and transnational collaboration in the Baltic Sea region. We are trade unions, employers, politicians, labour market experts, academics and public officials working together for sustainable labour markets.
BSLN is a forum of development for decision and policy makers to combine knowledge and ideas in order to come up with strategies, policies and practical solutions.
BSLN is a network of knowledge for experts, researchers and academics to provide a comprehensive picture of the challenges facing the Baltic Sea labour markets.
The BSLN combines national and transnational levels, bringing together relevant actors to work together for sustainable labour markets.
On the transnational level, the Steering Committee is a strategic and political decision making body of the project consisting of 8 representatives from trade unions, employer organisations and political bodies to influence and shape the Baltic Sea labour market policies.
The Facilitator Team, together with the project manager, is the project’s operational driving force, including 10 people coordinating transnational activities.
On the national level, coordination centres strengthen public relations and research on labour market issues in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. The centres are established in cooperation with employer organisations and trade unions.
Project coordinators from each of 26 partner organisations in 9 countries are responsible for implementing BSLN activities to reach the common goals of the project.
