Terceirizar, flexibilizar, precarizar : um estudo crítico sobre a terceirização do trabalho / Flexibilization and precarization of labour force : a critical study about the labour outsourcing phenomenon




This research aimed to undertake a study on the phenomenon of labour outsourcing due to the speed and amplitude it reached on recent decades. It has spread fastly among various sectors of activities, on a global scale, both within the public and private domains. And it also ceased to be performed only in support services, reaching the enterprises core activities. The labour outsourcing has important political consequences: the weakening of the bonds of solidarity among workers (both between workers hired directly by the enterprise and those outsourced) and of their representations and union practices. In light of the changes occurring in the world of work (including the restructuring of production and the neoliberal program), we present the origin of this new (and at the same time old) phenomenon, its main forms, and their consequences on the Brazilian context. We also present the intrinsic relation between flexibility and precariousness of work; legal aspects that allows this practices and, last but not least, we state that the phenomenon is a key strategy of capital. With that we mean that by enabling significant gains in profitability (and/or reducing costs), the labour outsourcing allows the capitalists to have a greater control over the workforce.
