Abstract

At the beginning of the 80s, the GERPISA was created by a small group of researchers, economists, historians, sociologists, who had been very involved in the debates on the evolution of the division of labour during the previous decade. If the theoretical elaborations in social sciences of the work proposed in the time reported reasonably the crisis of the work of the years 1965-74, they did not allow to explain the durable loss of profitability of numerous firms after 1974 and the impotence of unions and employees to find effective means to fight against the job cuts and the growth of the unemployment. The consequence of that was the creation of GERPISA. To re-start the analysis of work, of employees and of industrial relations on a base scientifically much more relevant, it was so necessary to do a long way around, to break the disciplinary borders, to appropriate methods and to reinterpret results elaborated under other paradigms and in other purposes. These ways around asked a lot of time. They turn out,, twenty later, their full justification by the obtained results.
