Abstract

The British postal service, Royal Mail, was privatised in 2013, following failed attempts at divestiture in 1994 and 2009. This article analyses processes of marketisation, liberalisation and privatisation, highlighting how strong workplace-centred union presence allowed for considerable influence and bargaining gains within such highly sensitive political projects of restructuring.
