IMPACT OF COLLECTIVE BARGAINING PROCESS ON THE RENUMERATION OF WORKERS

CHAPTER ONE

1.0      INTRODUCTION

1.1      BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

From the primordial era, the association of people or the coming together of people in order to cam a living has been the major elements of human existence. This association which to a large extent is voluntary is however constraints by the fact that the parties involved are not able to choose their own workmates. Therefore, the relationship existing between these workmates has been otherwise referred to as industrial relations (FOBTOB Lecture September, 2007).

 

But the most important obligation owned by an employer to an employee is to pay his or her wages/salaries. Consequently, the fulfillment of this obligation tends to make up about sixty percent of the total cost of running the business (Cole, 2002).

 

However, one of the most important influences in the fulfillment of this obligation by a certain organization encompasses the presence of trade union and the subsequent bargaining strength of such a trade union.

 

More importantly, for the fact that fulfilling this wage obligation instigates a relationship between the employees and the employer, it therefore means that the concept termed "employee relation is one very paramount issue of discourse- it involves the interrelationship both formal and informal between the employer and the employee. But in a more specific term, industrial relation which is an aspect or employee relation is more concerned about how these relationships among others including wages and general work conditions or employee's remunerations are regulated.

 


Principally, the regulation of this relationship between employer and employee is usually through a process of collective bargaining (Fashoyin, 1992). However, the employer must fulfill its obligation for the business entity to continue. Though, conflict of interest or opinions might arise in the course of this relationship. In order for the management and employee to operate harmoniously, there must be in place machinery through which these differences of opinions could be resolved so that production will not be disrupted or the continuous existence of the system might not be threatened. This machinery, thus providing an opportunity for a harmonious relationship between both parties is what collective bargaining is all about- it is a practice by which employees and employers meet from time to time to settle the terms and conditions of employment (FOBTOB lecture, Sept.200?).

 

Collective bargaining has become a vital process in management-employee relations. It allows agreed rules of conduct to be arrived at between the parties involved (FOBTOB lecture, Sept.2007).Within these rules, terms and conditions of employment or the modalities for the remuneration of workers agreed upon are implemented. But the underlying factor of collective bargaining process is to reach agreement on terms that are mutually beneficial to both parties irrespective of divergence of interest and opinions (Fashoyin, 1992).

 

1.2      PROBLEM ANALYSIS

In the food, Beverage and Tobacco Industry and other industrial sector where Collective Bargaining process which is believed to be very effective and widely accepted mechanism in the determination of employment terms and condition the challenges associated with the process cannot be underestimated.

 

Some of the associated problems identified with this process might include the following;

·              Paternalistic role of management; always wanting to solely determine the terms and conditions of employment and not wanting to give room for joint consultations or joint-decision making.

·              Spurious request by the trade unions; not basing their demands on current economic realities.

·              Delay tactics in a bid to avoid negotiations by the management.

·              Management hiding under the guise of national agreement to shy away from enterprise level bargaining or vice visa as the case may be.

·              Improper representation by the union representatives; they lack negotiation skills or they are either not well educated or are uninformed to engage in constructive and logical negotiations.

·              Instrument of manipulation in the hands of management against their members or seeking personal interest.

 

The stated problems bring to fore the inherent imperfections associated with the collective bargaining process even if it had been adjudged one of the best mechanisms for setting terms and conditions of employment or in the settlement of disputes.

 

1.3      RESEARCH OBJECTIVES

The purpose of this research is to specifically discuss and evaluate collective bargaining process and it impacts on workers remuneration in Intercontinental Distillers Limited. In order to effectively achieve the purpose of the study and to further address the research questions an attempt is made to realize the following objectives;


 

       I.            To carry out a review of the practices of collective bargaining in the food, Beverage and Tobacco industry in general and in Intercontinental distillers in particular.

     II.            To determine the extent to which collective bargaining (bargaining power/length of union membership) over time has influenced wages of each category of workers in Intercontinental distillers limited.

  III.            To establish if there exists any significant percentage change in wages overtime between, the junior and senior staff over time as result of collective bargaining.

  IV.            To make policy recommendation in line with our findings.

 

1.4      RESEARCH QUESTION

The research, principally evaluated the effect of collective bargaining indicators (bargaining power, length of union membership) on wages, motivation and productivity).

 

The various reviews were obtained from data collected from texts, journals, and other means like the internet or related research work. Primary data was also gathered from the result of the questionnaire survey. This research is however not politically motivated neither will it tend to instigate certain group against the union or management in the organization but it is an avenue to substantively add to existing knowledge in this chosen area of study.
