abstract

The increase of postings in the Belgian construction sector has accelerated and intensified the transnationalisation of the labour market and the reorganisation of the production model, transforming this sector into a laboratory of new forms of workforce fragmentation and stratification. Referring to the findings of the field research carried out under the EU projects Poosh and Con3Post, this chapter presents the main characteristics of the incoming postings in Belgium, the links between work organisation and the spread of postings, and the consequences on working conditions of the application of an increasingly flexible productive model based on subcontracting and contingent work.
