The article analyses, in a comparative view, the characteristics of some fundamental employment practices in two plants operating in the supply chain in Turin and Detroit, and belonging to the same American multinational company. The explanatory framework is constituted by the strategic choice model, according to which employment practices should be interpreted in reference to the interconnection of social actors’ strategic choice, constrained by the economic and institutional context. Another goal of the paper is to verify, in the light of the recent changes occurred in the field of employment relations within some car makers in Italy and United States, if the crisis is analogously causing relevant transformations in the supply chain.
Keywords: Industrial relations, working conditions, automotive crisis, Turin and Detroit, strategic choice, flexibility
