BECHER, Pablo Ariel  and  MARTIN, Juan Manuel. Social conflict, cooperativism and precarious labor: The case of Cooperativa Cartoneros del Sur in Bahía Blanca (2007‐ 2014). Trab. soc. [online]. 2016, n.27, pp.517-537. ISSN 1514-6871.

The present study is aimed to characterize and analyze the socio-economic relations in the solid urban waste collection process performed by social actors involved in a cooperative of cartoneros in the city of Bahía Blanca, and the struggles they have had to carry on in order to work in that condition. Fundamentally, this work will emphasize on the origin of this kind of entrepreneurship since the year 2007 to the present, evidencing the objective conditions of cooperative work and its relationship with informal and precarious work. The qualitative and quantitative methodologies express the correlation among different variables that allow us to get closer to comprehending the functioning of cooperatives within the net of garbage collection and the role of cartoneros.

Keywords : Cooperatives of cartoneros; Labor conflicts; Informal economy.
