WYCZYKIER, Gabriela. Reflexions on de unions action-based and job insecurity in the Argentina industrial sector. Trab. soc. [online]. 2011, n.17, pp. 285-308. ISSN 1514-6871.
This article examines the based syndicalism actions and demands around the issue of job insecurity that emerged in the industrial sector of the Argentinean economy in the current millennium. In this orientation, the instability has been established as a form of socio-labor integration of large segments of the population from the 70's onwards in Western economies, and in the 80 in Argentina. In a scenario characterized by the revitalization of the actors union and union-based conflicts especially since 2004 in the country, we intent to assess in which ways, with what attributes, capabilities and limitations, there have been demands and conflicting actions around the job insecurity stimulated by delegates and based workers. With this encouragement, we are concerned to observe how class solidarity links are recreated within the working groups. Under this goal, we present an analysis of three cases of based working groups that have faced demands and actions around this problem: two in the food industry and one in the metallurgical sector. In the industry sector, and in these three cases in particular, the demands around job insecurity have been directed primarily to deal with contractual diversification that was installed in workplaces since the 90's to today. In essence, workers with temporary contracts and to a lesser extent the companies outsourced workers.
