AbstractThe aim of this paper is to analyze current service outsourcing in Brazil. The process of flexibilization and increasing precariousness of labour in Brazil is discussed, focusing on service outsourcing/subcontracting, as one of the major policies for labour management and organization in the productive restructuring scenario. It presents a summary of the service outsourcing/subcontracting process during recent years in Brazil, bearing in mind its old and new modalities. It furthermore analyses the latest empiric results regarding service outsourcing/subcontracting in industries with high risks for the environment and for workers´ health, in the Metropolitan Region of Salvador/Bahia/Brazil. Moreover, it indicates the major forms of resistance and anti-establishment movements that were developed against the increasing precariousness of labour and against service outsourcing.
