Managerial Strategies and Labour Resistance in the Agro-industrial Plantations of the CDC 1947-1987

by Piet Konings

  • Description
  • Reviews
Examines the role of the control over labour in plantation production.

Despite variation in ethnicity, age and sex, the labour force in Cameroon has displayed considerable solidarity. Trade unions were active but after independence came under state control, whereas the informal labour organisations retained their solidarity in the disputes of the 1960s and 1970s.

"The strength of the volume lies in the detailed presentation of case material and the implications this has at present for debates on the modernisation of smallholding enterprises in Africa. -" Jean-Emmanuel Pondi, JOURNAL OF MODERN AFRICAN STUDIES
"...descriptions of industrial actions, including strikes such as those in 1974, 1976 and 1978, hardly known outside Cameroon and, because of state control of the media at the time, little known within Cameroon too. -" Jonathan Derrick, AFRICAN AFFAIRS
