The study was conducted at trade unions affiliated toCentral Organisation of Trade Union (COTU), Nairobi. The study sought to establish factors influencing identification of policy gaps at the trade unions affiliated to COTU, Nairobi. The research was used to determine the relationship between identification of policy gaps and the organisational performance at the trade unions affiliated to COTU.The study used the Classical Theory of Employment (CTE) by Keynes (1936) which states that; if market forces are allowed to operate in the economic system, it eliminated over production and make the economy produce output at the level of full employment.
