The objective of the study is to find the effort of labor union to improve labor relation in Nepalese manufacturing organizations. The study based on descriptive analysis and concentrates on understanding the role of union in increasing earning, securing employment, providing time off, and paying overtime which are essential for improving labor relation at work. In order to perform the study, some workers were contacted, and the currently available literature was reviewed.
