EXAMINATION OF THE EFFECT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATION PRACTICE ON ORGANIZATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Industrial relation has become formalized in the form of employment contract between the workers and the employers. The parties are seen as equal, who have invested their capital and aim at maximizing profit. The workers on the other hand contribute his services, which if not remunerated falls into abject poverty and dies.
An industrial or labour management relation is a strategic aspect of human resources management and can be defined in several ways.
Anugwom (20020 defines industrial relation:
As the network of social relationship between the employees and their union, employers and the association, and the government and the numerous agencies in their attempts to regulate terms and conditions of employment and person other function that directly concern the initiation and substance of peaceful and purposeful labour management relation which involve applying machinery dealing with complaint, grievance and disputes in an organization.
Yesufu (1984) defined “Industrial Relations as a whole web of human interactions at work which is predicated upon the matters that arise out of the employment contract”.
Armstrong (1980) sees Industrial Relation as the intertwining activities of the worker, managing and government for better working conditions.
Hence, the scope of industrial relations embraces relations and interaction between one trade union management and the state (i.e. government) are all important issues which fall with in the purview of industrial relations.
In the federal ministry of finance, Abuja, industrial relation deals with everything that affects the relationship between workers and employers, perhaps from the time the employee joins the work in federal ministry of financial until the time he or she leaves his or her job.
However, industrial relation is also fundamentally concerned with a complexity of power relationship and power sharing between management, the employee or trade union and the state (i.e. government) furthermore, with the realization of the vital importance of work to the entire life of a worker, industrial relations is becoming increasingly concerned with how the employee can be fully identified with the purpose of the organization and how he, by effective participation both in the work effort and decision making, can find greater self fulfillment in the work situation (Yesufu 1984).
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The attention have been devoted to examine the cause or factors which have been largely responsible for unproductively in the industrial relation practice.
One of the problems of industrial relation practice is employment of unsuitable candidates in preference to candidates of high merit. The reason can be trace directly to nepotism. Another problem encountered is the area of employment security whereby there is unusual termination of employment. This implies hours of work, shifts, holidays or leave.
Remuneration; level, frequency, method of wage which is the most sensitive area because the aim of every worker is to ensure that the method of wage in the organization is favoured and beneficial to him, payment and wage fixing. No worker will want his payment to be withheld, but this has become the custom of organization in Nigeria.
There are always regular labour and employee grievances and disputes in industrial relations, practice which leads to industrial strike actions and it reduces productivity.
The constant conflict and industrial disputes leads to low level of production and efficiency in an organization. It includes sickness and old age benefit, maternity leave, employment injury compensation. Safely, healthy and welfare at work upgrading and promotions.
The attainment of the various factors which have been largely responsible for organizational unproductivity and effective industrial relation practice in the public service like ministry of finance, Abuja,
is usually a difficult task because of reasons such as lack of management support, poorly policy process, funds etc.
Therefore, the problem in this research is to really asses organizational productivity and effective industrial practice in the public service like ministry of finance, Abuja and to find out whether this can be use to solve problem in the ministry.
