This article looks at the shifts and continuities in labor relations in Zimbabwe from c. 1900–2000. It does so by looking at three cross sections (1904, 1951, and 2002) to examine the changes that have taken place. By exploring the continuities (subsistence agriculture) and shifts (limited industrialization and urbanization) of labor relations over this period, it is hoped that the article provides a comprehensive account of the rapid and radical changes Zimbabwe underwent during the twentieth century and the impacts these have had on the peoples and economies within the southern African nation.

Cet article est orienté sur les dynamiques de changement et de continuité des relations de travail au Zimbabwe au cours de la période 1900–2000. En particulier, il concerne les changements qui se sont produits dans les tranches 1904, 1951, et 2002. En explorant les continuités (agriculture de subsistance) et les changements (industrialisation à petite échelle et urbanisation) des relations de travail au cours de cette plage temporelle, l’article donne une description articulée des changements rapides et radicaux auxquels le Zimbabwe se confronta pendant le XXe siècle et de leur impact sur la population et l’économie du pays.
