4 AN ORGANIZING TOOL FOR UNIONISTS Introduction to the Manual This manual is designed for trade unionists in the food and beverage sector who are confronting the challenge of outsourcing and casualization, the hiring of temporary, seasonal and fixed-term contract workers, and other forms of “precarious” employment. The aim is to provide union leaders, shop stewards, union education officers, organizers and rank-and-file activists with an organizing tool for raising awareness of the dangers of outsourcing and casualization and mobilizing an effective union response. As the manual demonstrates, an effective response involves proactive strategies that are based on educating and mobilizing both rank-and-file union members and non-unionized workers employed in precarious work. The information, analysis, case studies and strategies presented in this manual draw from the rich experience of IUF affiliates from around the world. The manual focuses largely on experiences at Nestlé, the world’s largest food company, because – as an industry leader – it exercises a powerful influence in setting new global standards and practices. The manual itself is also an outgrowth of a global IUF organizing project in Nestlé. As a result, all of the examples of the impact of “precarious” employment practices in Part 2 are based on the experiences of Nestlé unions. However, these experiences will be immediately recognizable to unionists in other food and beverage companies, and the analysis and conclusions drawn from these case studies have a much wider application beyond Nestlé. In Part 3, where we look at examples of successful union organizing strategies to combat precarious work, the manual also draws from the experiences of union struggles in Cola-Cola and other companies in the food and beverage sector. Again, these “best practices” and success stories contain lessons which are applicable generally. IUF
