This article explores and theorises the employment relations consequences of cost minimisation in the management of inter-organisational contracts for less-skilled work. Case-study data reveal that cost minimisation creates and exacerbates employment relations problems, with the ‘success’ of particular tactics dependent on the relative tractability of broader economic conditions and social relationships.
