Labour constitute the nerve of any business enterprises since it is responsible for translating policies and ideas put on paper by management into reality. Therefore, labour management relations are crucial in organisations because it is the backbone of any business and poor industrial relations which means that productivity will be low and staff turnover may be high. This study therefore set out to assess the impact of labour management relations on employee performance in an organisation. The data used for this analysis was based mainly on a sample of fifty-seven (57) respondents in the employment of Union Bank Plc in Jos metropolis. Expert judgement was used to determine the validity while Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was used to determine reliability of the research instruments. Qualitative and quantitative data was analysed using both descriptive and inferential statistics in SPSS. Correlation and regression analysis was employed to test the research hypotheses. The result revealed that a strong linear relationship exists between labour management relations and organisational performance, that labour management relations have a significant effect on workers’ performance and the organisation. Based on these findings, the study recommends that mutual understanding between labour and management should be maintained in order to continually improve productivity, that workers should be given the opportunity to participate in decision making and that both labour and management should observe ethical conducts in their dealings with one another.
