Abstract

Ce document synthétise les principaux résultats d'une enquête menée en 1999 auprès d'entreprises industrielles dunkerquoises fonctionnant en continu. Alors que les lois sociales des années 1990 ont conduit à l'extension et à l'aménagement du travail en continu, pour faire face à des impératifs économiques, les lois actuelles sur la réduction du travail se traduisent par une transformation qualitative de celui-ci. Une logique de compétence (associant polyvalence et flexibilité) s'impose comme norme d'organisation, pour adapter les effectifs aux besoins de la production. Cette transformation ne met pas fin au travail répétitif et a souvent pour corollaire une dégradation des conditions de travail. This document synthesises the major results of an enquiry conducted in 1999 in industrial firms using shift work in Dunkirk. Whereas the social laws of the early 90's led to the extension and the adjustment of shift work, in order to face economic imperatives, the current laws relative to the reduction of working hours have qualitative consequences on shift work. A logic of competence (linking polyvalence and flexibility) emerges as a norm of organisation, in order to adjust the workforce to the needs of production. This change does not end repetitive work and has as a usual consequence the degradation of working conditions.
