Specific objectives of the study were mainly three, to identify health workers’ demands that influences/affects the government’s provision of health services to the public, to examine the impacts of the government’s response to health workers demands on health provision to the public, and to assess the effects of the mechanisms by the government to end the strikes on health services provision to the public. The study was conducted in Songea Municipality using a case study design. This involved both qualitative and quantitative approaches. The study involved 135 participants. The study found that conflict existed in the Municipality because of factors like inadequacy of funds, lack of transparency, and lack of accountability and low level of education among the workers. The available mechanisms for conflict resolution were not effectively used in managing conflict. In this research recommendations included: further effective measures must be taken to address the existing and future problems; there is a need to review regularly the present Municipality policies so as to align them with current global changes concerning conflicts.
