GONCALVES, Júlia  and  BUAES, Caroline Stumpf. Sense of work and the removal to drivers of public transport: a case study. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp. 195-210. ISSN 1516-3717.

The unbalance between the work conditions, work organization and the expectations of the worker provoke a sickening and the impossibility of continuing exercising the job. This article aimed at understanding the work senses and the leave for a mental health disease produced by urban mass transportation conductors. For that, a case study was carried out in a company in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The results point at the polyphonic character of the speech of the workers. The job of the conductor is associated to the achievement of a dream, the living and the status given for being the conductor of the company. The strong binding with the job and with the company as well as the feeling generated by the discriminating look of the other potentiates the suffering experienced during the leave. In this sense, the importance of the creation of spaces in the organization is signaled in which promotes the hearing, the welcoming and health and well-being speech circulation.
