The Use of Flexible Staffing Arrangements in Core Production Jobs.
Gramm, Cynthia L.; Schnell, John F.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v54 n2 p245-58 Jan 2001
A 1994-96 survey of Alabama human resource managers indicated that unions deterred the use of flexible arrangements; subcontracting was positively related to core employees' wages; and flexible staffing was associated with core employee hiring costs and low-cost production strategies. Core employees gained job security through use of flexible staffing to adjust labor inputs as needed. (SK)
