This study deals with the impact of Labour Relations Act (Act 66 of 1996) at Vista University (Mamelodi Campus) from the year 1981-2004. Vista University was an academic institution which was established in 1981 under the Vista University Act (Act 106 of 1981). The dissertation has convincingly argued that the management of Vista University needed to comply with the principles of the Labour Relations Act (Act 66 of 1995). The study has shown that the Act had a negative impact on the employee-management relationship. The study proposes and recommends that the management should create a good labour relationship, manage conflict between employers and employees, maintain effective communication, and promote ethical behaviour and collective bargaining. The study, further, notes that principles of conflict resolution subjected to the Labour Relations Act (Act 66 of 1995) should be applied in a fair way and the techniques for attainment of conflict such as avoidance, accommodation be applied to resolve a situation.
