The main intention of writing this paper is to develop understanding about the concept of collective bargaining, its scope and implementation issues in HBFC Pakistan and in light of problems that they face in collective bargaining suggest some factors for effective collective bargaining. Simple random sampling was used for collecting data from population. In-depth interviews are conducted formally and informally. Based on the analysis of data gathered in HBFC it was found that there is no proper communication between union and
management. They have misconception between them and the management does not properly recognize the union. And there is also the involvement of politics in collective bargaining. So there is need of some improvement in collective bargaining process and also realize the importance of union and collective bargaining. The type of this research study is exploratory. Most of management member in the organization were not agree to share any information and some of them became very aggressive when asking for data
collection so that it was very difficult to interpret the results.

Collective bargaining is considered an industrial instrument or mechanism and it is the facet of
negotiation which is appropriate to the build relationship among the employees. It is conducted between
employer and worker:
