Conflits et résistances au travail
Conflict and resistance at work
Competition, social differentiation, dual labour markets, migration, tertiarization, individualization and flexibility: the world of work has changed. The defensive bastions of the workforce and protected professional spheres are today more isolated and more fragile than they used to be.
However, workplace conflict has by no means disappeared, as we can see in the demonstrations against the labour reform law in 2016. Rather, it has adapted to different contexts and taken on new forms that sometimes appeared to be closer to resistance than traditional conflict.
It is this diversification of forms of oppression – class, gender, sex and race – as well as their political implications that Ivan Sainsaulieu sheds light on here. He thus shows how workplace disputes maintain their subversive potential.
