Consommation : un budget limité pour les courses chez les consommateurs français
Bonne visite! The positive influence of organizational support on work-family balance WFB , by means of flexible attitudes and practices, is widely recognized in the literature. However, few studies have examined the dynamics surrounding these practices in work environments where a rigid organization of work time makes WFB a significant challenge for workers while severely limiting possibilities for management support. Carried out in partnership with Quebec unions, this study focuses on WFB informal practices in Quebec food retail stores, a low-wage employment sector where schedules are imposed, extended, unpredictable and variable. Thematic analysis of a corpus of thirty semi-structured interviews with managers, unionized female workers, and union representatives reveals that the scheduling process involves informal WFB practices despite collectively bargained rules, including the possibility of favouritism and arbitrary decisions. Those informal practices are often individual, or even secret, and are seen as the result of preferential treatment given to some people even when seniority is respected. The quality of relationships among colleagues can be affected and some working mothers are particularly disadvantaged by the degree of flexibility valued in their workplace. Finally, informal practices are accepted by the group if they are transparent and if advantages given to some workers are not perceived as creating injustice toward others.
