The study sought to investigate the impact of collective bargaining on employee performance in parastatals, focusing on Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority. A descriptive survey was conducted at Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and was chosen because it involves description of occurrences in a carefully planned manner. The researcher used an exploratory research design to conduct the research. A sample of twenty-five respondents, consisting of staff in the department of Human Resources, Finance and Administration, Scientific Services, Marketing and Hunting and Services was drawn from a population of 104. In addition, stratified random sampling was used. Questionnaires were the research instruments used to gather primary data. Twenty questionnaires were distributed to five different departments at the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority Head Office. Data were presented using Microsoft Excel, Tables, graphs and pie charts were also used to present data. The study established that there was a positive correlation between collective bargaining and employee performance. It also shows that increase in wages, salaries and allowances such as housing and transport, improved employee performance. The study also recommends that ZPWMA should address the conditions and terms of employment of the members of staff in order to create mutual understanding and harmony at the workplace between the employees and employers. From the study, the researcher also recommends that certain strategies should be put in place, such as training as mechanisms for enhancing employee which contributes to high employee performance.
