  • Corporate Ideology and Work Management at Walmart Brazil
    • Abstract: Patrícia Rocha Lemos
      The article discusses how the Walmart strategy - as one of the symbols of the transformations in the contemporary capitalism - develops its work management practices in the Brazilian context. Based on data from field research and analysis of labor lawsuits, the author demonstrates that some practices were rejected and others have been subject to resistance. Nevertheless, she emphasizes that the management practices has transferred successfully the key elements of the company corporate ideology and promoting the arrangement between consent and intimidation in order to guarantee the low cost of work.

  • Work’s organization and working relations in the Pernambuco Automotive
           Park: the application of WCM to FCA of Goiana
    • Abstract: Mario Henrique Guedes Ladosky
      The thread of the article is the discussion about the management of work in the Polo Automotivo de Goiana (Pernambuco) from the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) system and its work organization tools. In order to do so, we seek to bring empirical materials from the research begun in 2014 that allow us to reflect on labor relations considering processes of social legitimation that both enable the workers’ consent to the WCM system, and also forge their resistance and conflicts.

  • The outsourcing in the public service in Brazil: the case of outsourced
           workers in Federal University
    • Abstract: Graça Druck, Jeovana Sena, Marina Pinto, Sâmia Araújo
      The authors analyse outsourcing in the public service, through a case study of outsourced workers at the Federal University of Bahia. They discuss how, in the context of globalization, the neoliberal state transformed the work of the public servant. They describe the origin and regulation of outsourcing in Brazil and in the State of Bahia. They present the results of research carried out at the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil, in 2015, that involved outsourced workers in the areas of cleaning, concierge and surveillance. The data sources used were the management reports of the University and interviews with the workers, whose information allowed to draw their profile and the illustration of indicators of working conditions, labor rights, work environment, initiatives for compliance with their rights in the context of a weak trade union organization.

  • Joint ventures, displacements and collective bargaining: the case of
           Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional
    • Abstract: Sabrina de Oliveira Moura Dias
      Outsourcing is a kind of production and labor organization that has expanded significantly in Brazil and all over the world in the last decades. In spite of its widespread expansion between different categories of workers, a series of criticisms and actions against its expansion have emerged in the country in the last years, either through lawsuits and the mobilization promoted by some trade unions against outsourcing and its effects on workers conditions, or yet by the expansion of intervention of institutions such as the Labor Public Ministry and Labor Court in combating illegal outsourcing. These actions led, in some cases, to insourcing and resumption of outsourced activities, but in other cases, they led to new forms of hiring the workforce, such as those performed via joint ventures. This paper aims to understand the impacts of this kind of workforce management for trade unions and workers of a large Brazilian steel company.

  • Union’s role in the High Performance Work Practices
    • Abstract: Andrea Signoretti
      The author analyzes the role played by trade unions in the implementation of the High Performance Work Practices (HPWPs). The analysis takes into account the Italian context, and particularly two medium-sized firms operating in two different areas of the Trentino-Alto Adige region. The empirical evidence shows that trade unions negotiate the quantitative and distributive aspects of the HPWPs. The definition and implementation of the practices related to "how" people work, instead, turns out to be an exclusive managerial prerogative. This limited union action is not able to solve some, although minor, iniquities deriving from the application of these practices and, above all, it can result detrimental for employment conditions in other organizational contexts. The role played by trade unions is explained on the grounds of the interconnections between institutional and normative factors.

  • IT work: individualization, flexibility and union action in the
           high-skilled professions of the digital economy
    • Abstract: Daniele Di Nunzio
      Digital technologies orient the logic of production at global level. For this reason, the analysis of professions in information technology is useful to understand the major trends in the contemporary work organization. These workers have to cope with several tensions: with the use of specialized technologies and with various methods of scientific organization of the production processes, with a trend towards autonomy, cooperation and the enhancement of knowledge or, on the other hand, with new forms of surveillance and domination. The article explores their working conditions focusing the analysis on the opportunities for subjective affirmation and the challenges for the trade union representation. The analysis is based on the results of a qualitative survey with two focus groups and ten in-depth interviews with professionals in IT sectors in Italy.

  • Business outsourcing practices and trade union strategies: a comparative
           study in the logistics sector in Italy
    • Abstract: Maria Concetta Ambra, Valeria Pulignano
      This paper examines the importance of union strategies on the processes of organizational change implemented by two multinational companies operating in the Logistics sector in Italy. The article is structured in four salient parts. The first discusses the literature on trade union strategies. The second presents the methodology and the comparative design of the research. The third illustrates the case studies and analyzes them in the light of the actors’ action dynamics. The fourth examines the factors that influence union strategies and concludes. In summary, the importance of union strategies on the processes of organizing production and work is highlighted. The analysis of these strategies, within a common institutional context, contributes to the understanding of the conditions in which the collective actors (trade unions and companies) are able to transform the macro-institutional context in which they are embedded.

  • The effects of working time modulation on work organisation and trade
           union action
    • Abstract: Mara Bisignano
      Since the onset of the economic crisis in 2007, restructuring or corporate reorganisation programmes have followed one another. Depending on whether the objective is to "help companies" cushion the effects associated with cyclical changes in production activity or to supervise restructuring processes and sectorial crises, public policies may support bargaining procedures aimed at protecting employment levels and only indirectly the work activity. The aim of this contribution is to discuss the scope for trade union action in the light of the resources employed by trade union representatives in the face of short-time working and the effects it has on work organisation and working conditions. In this perspective, this contribution has a double objective: to analyse the consequences of a period of partial activity on work activity, organization and working conditions, articulating the reflection, based on the analysis of the discursive registers, on the margins of union intervention. The analysis mobilizes the observations made on five automotive plants located in different Italian regions.

  • Are We All Knowledge Workers' Upskilling and deskilling at the time of
    • Abstract: Salvatore Cominu
      The change of production models and the large-scale adoption of digital technologies are generating significant effects on jobs. It is commonly accepted that technological change will enable a more skilled, autonomous and creative workforce. This paper, which is based on a field research on banking sector, aims to highlight the co-existence of different patterns of skill change. In some situations, technological and organizational change enables processes of job enrichment, in others promotes the deskilling and even the emergence of new forms of Tayloristic control. Moreover, the multiplication of the forms of regulation coexists with new types of hierarchical control, at a higher level. Consequently, proposal for a new regulation based on creativity and autonomy of work in the emerging production systems, are founded on a partial and undifferentiated vision of the changes.

  • Adapting While Resisting: the Ambivalence of Union Action in the Face of
           Lean Production
    • Abstract: Baptiste Giraud, Jérôme Pélisse, Etienne Pénissat
      This article uses a survey of three French industrial establishments to examine the persistent difficulties of unionists to make issues of work organization a basis for collective action - especially when these issues result from lean production. The authors first revisit the ways in which lean management was introduced into each of these factories and the unionist critiques they occasioned, largely concentrated on dissent against the intensification of work and hierarchical pressure. The article then illustrates the ambivalence of surveyed unionists confronted with these reorganizations of work and the resulting fragility of worker mobilization, notably due to divisions generated both between unionists and among workers.

  • The French trade unions in the grip of the current context of industrial
    • Abstract: Dominique Glaymann, Benoît Scalvinoni
      Very much weakened by a decline of union density and an ever growing tendency to divisions, are the French Trade Unions still playing a key role within the employment relations system of the country' Are they still capable to affect positively upon the outcome of collective bargaining' This paper will examine the efficiency of the union movement by analysing its strategies in two different cases. In the agency sector, where the trade unions have finally agreed to exchange their acceptance of that kind of precarious jobs they once rejected against a few social rights. And in two firms which were in the process of restructuring due to the economic crisis of 2008 and in which they acted as partners to the firms when jobs were cut, in return to small advantages. These two research fields are quite different in their scales and temporality. They are based on the one hand on the analysis of the texts of the collective agreements and on the other hand on the interviews of the unionists who were directly concerned/affected. But both exemplify the same logic of instrumentalization of the trade unions. They are squeezed between trying to exist as part of the collective bargaining and more often being reduced to defensive postures where their choice for the lesser evil leads to the risk of being used, to finish one day by being more and more circumvented by the on going reforms of the Labour Code.
