La main-d'oeuvre des usines sidérurgiques de Lorraine : 1880-1939 : étude des flux : l'exemple des Forges de Joeuf

Abstract : With the help of documents from public archives (archives of the departements of Moselle and Meurthe-et-Moselle) and from the private collections of the companies wich have been studied (de Wendel's forges in Joeuf, metallurgic societies of Knutange, forges of the navy and of Homecourt, Chatillon-Commentry at Neuves-Maisons and the rolling mills of Thionville), the study was further supported by convincing elements thanks to both qualitative and quantitative research. Therefore, the use of such scientific tools as statistics, as well as the use of a powerful computer medium, contributed to the rigour and accuracy of the research. Rather than developping an argumentation with samples taken at random, the dissertation includes the entire population of workers from several factories during the closen period. No doubt can be cast on the representativeness of the sources used and knowledge about workers in the iron and steel industries grew richer as new elements were discovered. The demonstration aims at better understanding of the movements of the labour force wich passed in transit through the industrial factories of Moselle and Meurthe-et-Moselle, two French departements (administrative divisions) at a crossroads between southern and northern Europe. This study starts at the end of the 19th century, a major stage in the economic development of eastern France and of the iron and steel industry as a whole. It ends with the Second World War. Factory workers where analysed so as better follow and understand their spatiotemporal trajectories their behaviours in work teams and their professional evolution. Particular attention was paid to the question of the relations of the workers with the employers and to the intervention of the state
