NOGUEIRA, Arnaldo José França Mazzei. The labor relationships in a global company: a new paradigm or neocorporativism?. Cad. CRH [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.57, pp. 581-600. ISSN 0103-4979. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-49792009000300011.
This paper discusses labor relationships in a global company and it was the result of research in an trucks assembly plant in the ABC area in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The company studied presents a most advanced pattern in the organizational dimension in labor relationships or in the workplace, Brazilian context considered. The solution of labor conflicts in this company points strongly to a negociation pattern in relation to the statutory (Zylberstajn and Pastore 1985), what took some authors to indicate a way of cooperation-conflictive to work with labor relationships (Rodrigues 1997) and an institutionalized way of workers insertion in the processes of technological and managerial innovation (Bresciani 2002). The scheme mounted in the company was a result of the union strategy in the workplace and of the company administration, in particular of human resources. The analysis of the experience allowed to verify, besides an advanced paradigm of labor relationships, the statement of a tendency to the societary corporativism or neo-corporativism in relation to the corporativism typical of state companies in the Brazilian labor system.
