This paper examined the processes of wage determination in Anambra State Civil Service. The issue of wage determination in Nigeria has over the years constituted challenges to both civil servants and government and this has resulted in the use of different wage commissions in the determination of workers’ wages and salaries. This has not gone down well with the workers since they are not fully involved in the matters that have to do with their welfare which has led to industrial unrest at different times in the past. This paper concluded by making recommendations to the government on the need to involve workers of Anambra State Civil Service through their different trade unions in the entire processes of wage determination for peaceful industrial relations.
