Abstract

Globalization has continued to impose constraints on the ability of nation-states to control and regulate labour and working conditions effectively. In spite of the rigorous labour law system in Nigeria, the ideological hegemony of neo-liberalism has weakened the political will to regulate employment conditions and labour rights successfully. The growth in the number of multinational corporations has heightened insecurity and vulnerability for those workers employed by subcontractors. Relying on neo-liberal theory as it theoretical leaning, the paper examined work reorganisation and the constraints of standard labour practices in Nigerian Food and Beverage Sector. A total of 550 permanent and non-permanent workers were proportionately selected. Also, a total of 18 In-depth interviews were conducted among management, senior, junior staff, non-permanent workers and Trade union leaders across the sub-sectors. Quantitative data were analysed using descriptive and multivariate statistics, while qualitative data were content analysed. The study found that casualisation did not encourage best labour practices in the food and beverage industry. Casualisation and outsourcing affected workers’ right to pension and gratuity benefits of non-permanent workers than permanent workers in both sectors. There was significant relationship between work reorganisation[r=0.29, df (224): P<.01] and decent work treatment of non-permanent staff in the beverage sub-sector Therefore, stakeholders should put effective monitoring mechanisms in place to enhance best labour practices in food and beverage industry.

Keywords: Work Reorganisation, Decent work, Job outsourcing, Casualisation, inhuman Treatment
