The study focused on the impact of industrial action on achievement of organizational goals (a study of ASUU, MOUAU Chapter) in Abia State. The specific objective sought to achieve in this study include to: determine how industrial action can significantly aid in achieving union goals, determine the relationship that exist between industrial action and employees demands from management, ascertain what causes the union to be involved in industrial action, establish whether industrial action is the only effective means of achieving union objectives. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study the study had a population size of 1029 of academic staff of MOUA U out of which 288 sample size was achieved through Taro Yamane at 5% error inference and 95% level of confidence. Instrument used for data collection was primarily questionnaire. Out of 288 questionnaires that was administered. 222 copies were returned. while 66 not returned The hypotheses were tested using Chi-square Correlation. and ANOVA Statistical tools. The findings for hypothesis one indicated that there is no significant association between industrial action and achieving union goals, where X 2 c =6.154 < X?t = 9.49,p - value= .188 > a= 0.0S. Hypothesis two showed a positive relationship between industrial action and employees demands from management where correlation matrix oj.136 at a correlation coefficient of 1.000, significant level of 0. 05. The result indicated that respondents are 95% sure industrial action correlates with employees demand (increase in workers welfare and income).Nu/1 hypothesis was rejected whereas alternate hypothesis was accepted. Hypothesis three revealed that F-value of 857 > .426 p - value > a = 0.05, this suggests that unsealed dispute between union and government; unsettled dispute between union and management are significant causes of industrial action by the union. Hypothesis four showed that since Chi-Square calculated (X?c) 38.590> (X?t) (critical value) of26.30 where Df= 16,p = .001 at a = 0.05 significant level. Thus, reject the null hypothesis that industrial action is not the only effective means, whereas accept the alternate hypothesis o:herwise sruted. n1e study recommended that an atmosphere of cordiality should exist between the worker and the management. This will guarantee employees' performance and effective implementation of government working policies. Again the management should be responsive, considerate and be ready to understand the plight and have the love of the workers at heart.
