Abstract:This paper looks at the dynamics within the Mineworkers' Union of Zambia (MUZ) and the Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) that underlay their resistance to control by the one-party State of Zambia's United National Independence Party (UNIP) in the period 1973-1981. Mineworkers expected an end to the racial inequality and violent supervision that lay at the heart of colonial industrial relations, but the postcolonial State appeared to be as opposed to independent industrial action as its colonial predecessor and was willing to use similar methods to repress it.
