Este artículo analiza la flexibilidad laboral en los proveedores directos ubicados en Cataluña de los fabricantes de automóviles, para adaptarse a los cambios en la demanda. La utilización de la flexibilidad externa y una alta temporalidad en el empleo han sido estrategias muy utilizadas tradicionalmente por las empresas para conseguir tal objetivo. Las mayores exigencias por parte de los fabricantes a sus proveedores en reducir precios, aumentar la productividad e introducción del JIT están dando gran importancia a la flexibilidad numérica interna y funcional. Del análisis de una muestra de empresas verificamos en qué grado han incorporado los tipos de flexibilidad laboral. / This paper analyses labour flexibility in direct suppliers of OEMs located in Catalonia, for their adaptation to changes in changes. The use of external flexibility and to have a high percentage of workers on temporary contracts have been common practice of firms when trying to achieve this objective. The higher requirement of OEM to their direct suppliers in price reduction, increases in productivity and the introduction of JIT have given most importance to internal numerical and functional flexibility. From our analysis of a sample of firms we assess in which intensity firms have incorporated the different types of labour flexibility.
