De la division morale du travail de contrôle dans le métro parisien

Abstract : The RATP’s new marketing guidelines change the work of the ticket collectors. They conceive their work according to two categories in tension : le commercial (to be “commercial”) and le répressif (to be “repressive”). This paper explores, first, how these categories structure the ticket collectors’ working practices and how they produce a dissimilar way to deal with passengers. Then the article deals with the preference given by ticket collectors to the repressive aspects of their work, which responds to a social strategy to keep some autonomy while working conditions are deteriorated by commercial guidelines.
