Flexibility and digitization processes are strictly related and this relation defines the contemporary forms of work organization. Digitization - with a growing pervasiveness in economic and social life since the Nineties of the last century - has fostered the flexibility at any level of the work organization, considering the internal and external relations as well as the working conditions and wages with paradigmatic impacts for the trade union actions, considering the organizational logics and the contents of the bargaining. The work individualization, the increasing flexibility and the diversification of production processes led the trade union action to operate through an increasingly flexible, reticular, modular and adaptive organization. At the same time, the trade union faces the challenge of affirming the worker's subjectivity by combining the affirmation of general protections with the enhancement of personal specificities, through new practices of participation, bargaining and mobilization.
