Abstract

The paper traces the process of change in the regulation and associational governance of the labour market of the Greek telecommunications industry during the past two decades. The industry has been shaped by the EU regulatory impact, which prompted the opening up of the market to competition. The competitive pressures, in conjunction with the privatization process of the incumbent operator, brought about new structures of interest representation in labour and business. The paper considers these developments in the context of theoretical conjectures about convergence and divergence in the labour relations sphere of capitalist models. It is argued that the path of convergence to the Anglo-Saxon model of decentralised bargaining is largely explained by the form of interest representation of business, and the divisions between and within labour.
