On 3rd October, the citizen referendum on the future changes in the status of the Postal system in 2010 showed a high proportion of French mobilization around this institution and their commitment to its public nature.
A reform was put in place on March 2010 which transformed the post office, and established a national public company. Since the reform of the PTT in 1990, a public limited company is, in theory, open to private investors.
This transformation corresponds to an imminent need for resources for the company, and the new requirements are foreshadowed by the opening of all activities of the Post Office for completion in 2011.
Although the government ensures that capital will result in 100% reform, many workers, politicians, associations and private citizens fear the privatization of a traditionally public service.

[...] The idea to apply to all individuals or groups as well who feel concerned by the activities of the group was also stated very clearly at the beginning of the speech: "Our future is built with the confidence of citizens, clients, our shareholders and all postal workers." Jean-Paul Bailly insisted throughout his speech on the values upheld by the Postal service and longevity, on the responsibility of everyone in the group's success and thus creates the feeling of belonging to a real community. Now it is clear that a shared identity and a common ideology are strong elements of stability and confidence factors in a period of major change. The values identified in the speech - close, performance and success, ambition, social and environmental responsibility, employee-actor, public service obligations - have not been by chance. [...]
