GUIMARAES JUNIOR, Sergio Dias  and  FERREIRA, João Batista de Oliveira. Subject in the background: a critical reflection on the connection between the outsourcing dynamic and processes of subjectivation. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.2, pp. 381-389. ISSN 1984-6657.

In this article we seek to promote a critical reflection about the connection between the outsourcing dynamic and processes of subjectivation. In this regard, we present the qualitative results of research aimed at analyzing the work of outsourced workers in a Brazilian public university. In light of the theoretical-methodological contributions of the Psychodynamics of Work, the results, presented here in the form of bundles of analysis, point to the predominance of instituted forms of work that tend to stifle the inventive capacity of the subjects, revealing the multifactoriality of the process of instrumentalization of their work, leading them to horizons of suffering and non-creation. In parallel, it was observed that the first steps of the solution constructed by these workers, in view of this adverse scenario, are created in the fertile ground of collective actions, representing forms of resistance to affirm their dignity and guarantee their rights.

Keywords : outsourcing process; psychodynamics of work; precariousness of work.
