1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
For the purpose of clarity and understand it is imperative that the introductory part of this project approach the type by giving definitions of the subject of the project work.
Roder and Rogers (1973) defined the term organization or industrial activities as a stable system of individuals who work together to achieve through a hierarchy of ranks and division of labour a common goals, while on the other and Gray (1980) defined conflicts as a behaviour by one person or group of persons that is purposely designed to inhibit the attainment of goal by another person or a group of person or when one person or a group of persons deliberately interferes with the aim of denying the other goal achievement.
However, one should be careful not to confuse conflict with competition and so often the two has been interchangeable but by definitions of the two can be viewed differently.
Conflict takes place when individuals or group have incompatible goals but do not interfere with each other as they both try to attain their respective goal while competition occurs when individuals or groups have incompatible goals and they interfere with each other as they try to attain the respective goals.
In home parents suppress conflict by telling their children to stop fighting. In schools, teachers are assumed to have correct answers and exams are checked to see whether students are deviating from these. Most churches stress brotherhood and peace and not conflict.

The existence hinders the said industry from achieving its set objectives no matter which ever way one may want to view it, either from the point of the employee or the employee, it is assumed that conflict is an unhealthy development towards the attainment of industrial goal. The case of ANAMMCO is viewed from the following perspectives:
1) The effect of labour- Management conflict in ANAMMCO
2) Types of conflicts and their effect on personnel management
