This article examines whether the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) can regain its former position of industrial influence within the British provincial newspaper industry after a decade of de-recognition by employers, particularly in the context of the new statutory mechanisms to gain union recognition. Two UK business services companies are compared both to each other and to their common state-owned industry background in order to assess the implications of trade union recognition and changes in bargaining structure. Union recognition was abandoned by one company under the agenda of ‘individualisation’ and ‘personal contracts’ but retained by the other under that of ‘partnership’.
