Labour market segmentation and employment relations: new challenges for collective action

Changes in the organizational models and changes of management styles have sharpened the segmentation of the labour markets. Labour markets segmentation acquires increased consistency since it discriminates with regards to workers’ personal, family and social situations. Since it gives rise to different kind of interests, values and behaviours between labour segments, it helps us to explain why the individual relationships and the micro corporative action acquire a greater space in the social employment relations. Trade unions must confront with this panorama.
