ENLithuania is one of the flagships of the neoliberal economies. Prior to the financial crisis, together with other "Baltic tiger-states" Lithuania achieved remarkable economic success. In the course of the financial crisis it consistently implemented several austerity measures which had a particular effect on the public sector. In the post-Soviet context the status of Lithuanian trade unions is mainly considered precarious. How the austerity policy of the Lithuanian state has affected trade unions remains underresearched. For this reason, the following paper approaches this issue from a socio-linguistic perspective. Based on the notion of the conceptual metaphor, the paper presents results of a metaphorical analysis of articles published in three Lithuanian daily newspapers between 2013 and 2016. From this three conceptual metaphors depicting trade unions have been derived from the corpus and are considered in the paper. These include militancy, political instrument and partnership.
