Des intérimaires à La Poste : le quotidien d’une main d’œuvre temporaire au sein d’une “entreprise publique

Abstract : Administration of State until 1990 (PTT), La Poste traditionally resorted to a hand of temporary work (auxiliaries, temporary replacements, contract employees and from 1967: temporary workers) to answer the variable and seasonal nature of its activities. Become "public enterprise", La Poste continues to appeal to contingent workers to adjust its staff in diverse sectors, of the sorting in the delivery of mail and parcel. From data stemming from a workstation to ColiPoste and from conversations realized with temporary workers having made the missions as postmen, it seems that the temporary workers constitute a category of workers situated in the suburb besides by employees: devoid of badges of the company which uses them and confined in works of supplement or usually depreciated by the permanent employees. It is mainly question of the effects of the technical insecurity (skills, learning) but also temporal insecurity (flexibility, turn over) which leads their regime of hiring on the work in everyday life. Be interested at the place which occupy the temporary workers allows to question certain transformations of the organization of the work within a public enterprise which uses employees on the different statutes.
