Abstract:This article is the second of a two-part study on the evolution of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) in the 1990s. This second part covers the period 1995-2000, when the labour centre adopted a 'social democratic' ideology and a strategy of negotiation. This lasted until 1997, when the labour centre resolved to challenge the ruling party's hold on power. The article argues that the labour centre increasingly narrowed its democratization critique to 'regime change', through which it gained a broad array of new allies, but which also terminally weakened its organic basis in the working class. Bibliogr., notes, sum. in English and French. [Journal abstract]
