This study is titled “Effect of Strategic Labour Unionism on Workers Welfare in Enugu State Public Service. The researcher sought to ascertain the extent to which labour unionism has guaranteed job security for workers in Enugu State; determine the extent to which workers unions have assisted to ensure timely promotion of workers in Enugu State; investigate the contributions of workers unions on regular provision of training programmes for workers in Enugu State; and ascertain the extent to which effective labour unionism has assured timely payment of pension and gratuities to retirees in Enugu State. Plurarism theory propounded by Flanders and Fox (1970) was used as the theoretical framework of the study. Secondary sources of data collection were utilized. Materials generated were analyzed contextually. The outcome of the study showed that effective unionism is lacking in Enugu State from 2015 till date consequent upon the harsh political environment under which unions operate in the state. Hence, Welfare of workers such as job security, timely promotion with commensurate financial benefits, regular training programmes and pension and gratuities benefits are hardly provided as and when due. All these have resulted to poverty, hunger, lack of interests to assigned responsibilities, etc among workers across government establishments in Enugu State. The researcher recommended among other things that labour unions in Enugu State should persuade government institutions in the state to ensure adequate provision of workers welfare in order to improve the socio-economic wellbeing of the workers toward higher performance in the organizations; unions should seek redress in industrial court with regards to any infringement on the rights of any worker in the state as this has yielded result in the past.
