Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the negotiation process between the representatives of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the representatives of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN). The key issue of interest in this study is poor negotiation process and outcome between the above-mentioned disputants. In order to achieve the objectives of this study, a qualitative approach was adopted. A total number of 42 participants were engaged in this study, 23 representatives from the side of the FGN and 19 representatives from ASUU. Findings from this study revealed that ASUU and FGN have not been able to resolve their labor dispute because of the FGN insincere and dishonest behavior in-terms of the implementation of the agreement to ASUU at the negotiation table. In contrast, result from this study indicates that lack of prioritization of demands and non-compromise from ASUU side are other factors which prevents the two parties from reaching a successful mutual agreement for some decades. This study concluded that, disputants cannot achieve a fruitful resolution outcome without a sincere and honest communication between the two parties at the negotiation table. In addition, negotiators cannot reach a satisfactory win-win settlement point without cooperation and compromise between the two parties
