Abstract : This article describes a particular way developed by employees to respond to the constraints of a very restrictive manufacturing plant: the mutual cooperation. Facing a very strict organizational context, the production workers can only rely on themselves to cope with the constraints of work. In this context, a complex system of strategies is deployed, resulting in a work environment governed by the sense of collaboration and mutual cooperation. The objectives of the implemented strategies, however, go beyond the attempts to reduce the work overload. They may be linked to a way of maintaininghogh levels of productivity and a way for workers ti keep their jobs. We hope to ontribute, through this study, to the general knowledge of the strategies developed by workers in production lines in order to minimize the paths.
