The article is based on an examination of the concept of institution as it has been advanced in the human and philosophical sciences, in order to discuss labor de-mocracy in neoliberal capitalism. According to the author, it is necessary to devel-op a new kind of form of enterprise idea starting from what is defined as principle of the common. The practices of the common are defined as institutional practices that consist not only in projecting a desirable end towards the future, but also in implementing, here and now, a principle of self-government of social and produc-tive world, achievable through the definition of a new collective political subject. Contributing to bring out this common political action remains an axis of the struggle against the new management, which destroys the moral and collective di-mension of work.
