This paper first examined the place of centralization of wage determination process in providing uniform salaries and conditions of service for workers of comparable status in work organizations. The paper argued that it is this machinery which was practiced in Nigeria that ensured a good working relation in educational institutions in Nigeria. The recent introduction of the deregulation policy negates this practice. The pointer to this include the high incidence of industrial conflicts, poor work ethics, inequitable salary compensation and “statism”. This policy, to some extent, may be affecting the attainment of national educational goals and high standard in some public and private institutions than in others. Government is therefore called upon to revisit the issue of deregulating wage bargaining in Nigeria.
