Abstract

What does it mean to work in the retail sector today? In Switzerland, two giants share almost the whole market. In order to stay competitive, they intensify the work, demand more availability from their employees and deskill certain positions. How do the store managers achieve profitability objectives despite the constraints in this context? How do the cashiers cope with the increasing automation of their jobs? How do the shelf workers reconcile customer contact with ever-increasing time constraints? This book explains how neoliberal working time patterns are taking place in the supermarkets and questions the evolution of the working day in our society. The study is based on 78 interviews with managers, shop floor workers and union officers. Nicola Cianferoni is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Geneva and the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.

Abstract

The IG Metall has put the topic of working time on the agenda: for more self-determination for the employees. In this book, actors present the course and outcome of the 2018 collective bargaining round in the metalworking and electronics industries and take a look at key elements of trade union action. Justice, autonomy, solidarity and power are at the center. They see the collective bargaining round as a practical prelude to a future debate on the role of trade unions, participation and participation in a society in transition.
