Abstract
This research studies on the way Globalization has affected the labour movement at a place of work. The researcher was interested in investigating on how globalization has influenced labour movement and labour market. The researcher took Tanzania Cigarette Company Limited (TCC), a major cigarette production company in Tanzania as a case study. The study took the form of self-administered questionnaire as well as archival research. The questionnaire was carried to selected employees and those who resigned from TCC in year 2004 to 2006. This has on the other hand, had effect in the labour movement where employees resigned looking for better working condition, more pay and career opportunities. TCC has to improve and come up with more competitive package to complete than it is now, otherwise, as a result of Globalization, new and small employers are joining the bandage of employers in the market, and are coming up with sweet packages, benefits and career opportunities. The major cause, which made respondents to leave employment, was promotional aspects. Thus considering the size of TCC, it is such a big organization for one to climb up to the top management so easily. Globalization has caused change in the global market, competition and influence in the labour market and labour relation. TCC should therefore, come up with the long term incentive plan to retain key talented employees so as to avoid voluntary turnover.
