The paper will argue that despite the extreme disorganisation and ‘crisis’ of Spanish industrial relations, trade unions have responded by developing a broader political approach ‐ at times almost assuming the “task” of the political party ‐ and using flexible “arms‐length” relations with the state. This in turn has further consequences for the development of a “decentralised” industrial relations system in Spain. Thus recent theorisations of disorganised capitalism such as Lash and Urry's will be debated in the context of the Spanish experience.
