Abstract:This study investigates the links between privatization and changes in working practices using data from the UK 1990 Workplace Employees Relations Survey. Privatization raises the probability of an establishment of experiencing reduced job demarcation and/or increased flexibility in the use of the workforce by managers. After exploration no clear association is found between ownership and the level of restrictive working practices.
