dc.description.abstract This study sought to make an assessment on the role of TUICO as a trade union in enhancing workers wellness in Tanzania. The study examined the functions of TUICO in addressing employees wellness in Tanzania, assessed the strategies employed by TUICO in addressing employees wellness in Tanzania, examined the challenges facing TUICO in enhancing workers wellness in Tanzania, and lastly the study recommended feasible alternatives to improve TUICO performance. In research methodology the targeted sample was 60, which include staff from TUICO head office and members from different sectors. However the research focused on the staff from various departments/units operating at TUICO and on members side in Dar es salaam as the matter of fact Dar es salaam is the main actor and all of the head office is located there form the union to the members office. The findings of this study revealed that, TUICO is playing a great roles in enhancing workers wellness in Tanzania although as a union is facing a number of challenges and obstacles in addressing workers issues. The study reveal that TUICO is employing different techniques in enhancing workers wellness in Tanzania such as, training, visiting, representation in disputes, representing workers in collective bargaining with the management which brings positive changes to the workers. The study recommends that, TUICO in order to succeed they must increase the number of membership due to the fact that, the union is facing a great challenge of lack of enough capital to support its activities, so by increasing and having a strong membership base, it will help the union to accumulate huge amount of money as a deduction dues each month as the result of having many members who are contributing union dues. This will help the union to become strong and powerful financially which lead to easy the process of serving members and facilitate other union activities. Being strong financially will solve even other problems because they are rising as the result of financial inability of the union to deal with them. en_US
