Using helicity-amplitude techniques, we derive the partonic level transverse spin-spin asymmetries a^NN for the processes relevant to the hadronic production of three-jet events: namely, qq'qqg and qq'qqg. Just as in the case of two-jet production, we find that the partonic level asymmetries (a^NN) are roughly 10 times smaller than the corresponding longitudinal asymmetries (a^LL).
