The objective of this paper to discuss the relationship among new technologies and work, problematizing the different dimensions among organization and control of the work. Our focus consists of analyzing, starting from a case study accomplished in the section of tobacco in Uberlândia/ MG among 2005-2007, how a group of new qualifications and abilities disputed by the companies is implicating in a increase of worker's autonomy in the factory ground and reverting the extreme division among conception and execution of the work, pillar of the pattern of accumulation taylorist-fordist or if, to the opposite, they potentiate, through new mechanisms, the control of the capital on the work. Initially we considered the work and of the formation of the workers at the light of the Marxist theory for, soon afterwards, put in question the issue of the science and of the technology as main productive force, concluding with the discussion of the introduction of the innovations in the industry of tobacco.
