Relations professionnelles, transformations de l'organisation du travail et politiques de réduction de l'emploi dans les entreprises

Abstract : The theme of the thesis is the interactions between industrial relations and the transformation of the productive system. The first chapter explains the limits of neo-classic analysis, and specially his difficulty to integrate unions and to justify his objectives. The mains modelisations of pay bargaining are presented and discussed, and their limits incite to use the concept of industrial relations system. The second chapter presents the principles of regulationnist analysis and the role of industrial relation in their explanation of dynamic of the economy. The interest to use the concepts of the "economie des conventions" for the clarification of the emergence of a new "rapport salarial" is estimated. Lastly, a definition of institutions as collective action is suggested in the filiation of J.R. Commons. The third chapter continues the reflexion with some descriptive elements on the evolution of work organisation and industrial relations. The place of industrial relations in those evolutions is discussed with the concept of techno-organisational trajectory. For better estimated the importance of national context the action of different nationals unions on the work organisation are studied. The chapter four exposes the results of an analysis of the survey "industrial relations and firm negotiations" concerning firm negotiation on new technologies and the links between organisational innovations and industrial relations. The last chapter is consecrated to the role of unions in the negotiations on the planned redundancy schemes. It is demonstrated that the actors of the industrial relations system have difficulty to use the opportunity of the "Aubry act". Those problems of the negotiation are clarified by an analysis of the limits of the labour department's action and of the employer's exclusively economic reasoning.
