Abstract

There has been strife and conflicts in Enugu State College of Education (Technical) Enugu for sometime now. This study investigated the causes of these conflicts and its attendant effects on the workers productivity. A survey research method was employed in the investigation where by 100 sampled respondents returned the researcher’s generated questionnaire. It was found out that lack of upward movement of workers in terms of promotion, their employers inability to implement an agreed policy and management’s intimidation of staff were among the causes of conflict in ESCET. It was recommended that for the path of peace to be cleared, promotions of due staff must commence immediately and that government should implement its agreed bargaining with the staff union and finally all forms of intimidations must seize in the institution. These will bring back industrial harmony and promote productivity in the institution.
