Was feudalism/serfdom considered coerced labor?

If someone must do a certain labor then it is coerced. Thus, if a serf must do a certain labor, like farm the land they call home for their local lord, then they are being coerced. Notice that coerced labor, like slavery, mita, indentured servants, truly are varied.
