Modernisation By Consent


By Neal Lawson


This report outlines our own alternative proposals to the government’s plan to part-privatise Royal Mail and the Post Office, we set out a positive vision for a modern post service that remains in public hands. This report has two sections. In the first we examine why privatisation is the wrong answer to the problems Royal Mail and Post Office Counters face; in the second we set out a range of governance, investment and industrial relations reforms that could form the basis of a new model for Royal Mail that avoids privatisation but enables the modernisation of the service in terms of investment and improved industrial relations.
