CONFLICT MANAGEMENT FOR EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE IN AN ORGANIZATION: A STUDY OF UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC
CHAPTERONE

                    INTRODUCTION                
1.1     BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Conflict is inevitable in both human and organizational relations. Conflict arises naturally in every arena of our daily life. Every organization encounters conflict on a daily basis. It is something that cannot be avoided. It happens on the job, between groups, within families and right in the middle of our most personal relationship. But it is possible to manage them when we recognize them on time. It is necessary to continuously track the organizational signals which point to their existence. If we do not react duly, this can lead to the situation that the conflict will negatively affect the organization.
Conflict occurs between people in all kinds of human relationships and in all social settings. Because of the wide range of potential differences among people, the absence of conflict usually signals the absence of meaningful interaction. Conflict by itself is neither good nor bad. However, the manner in which conflict is handled determines whether it is constructive or destructive. (Deutsch & Coleman, 2000). Conflict is defined as an incapability of goals and values between two or more parties in a relationship combine with attempt to control each otherand antagonistic feelings toward each other (Fisher, 1990). The incapability or difference may exist in reality or may only be perceived by the parties involved. Nonetheless, the opposing actions and the hostile emotions are very real hallmarks, of human conflict. Conflict has the potential for either a great deal of destruction or much creativity and positive social change (Kriesberg, 1998). Therefore, it is essential to understand the basic processes of conflict so that; we can work to maximize productive outcomes and minimize destructive ones.
1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Some organizations are able to effectively manage or resolve their conflicts amicably, but others cannot. Conflict in the work place can have different effect depending on how it is managed. In institutions such as banking, clear cut policies ought to exist to provide guidance on how the administrators ought to manage or resolve conflicts. In the light of this, the study seeks to unravel the possible conflicts between workers and the management of Union Bank, the strategies explored for conflict management, the effectiveness of the management strategies be examined and finally the occurrence of future industrial conflicts in Union Bank be avoided.
