Two alternative models were proposed to test whether organisational climate (OC) is related to organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB) of teachers. The first model assumed a direct relationship between the two. The alternative model contended that the relationship between OC and OCB is not direct but mediated by variables representing justice perceptions (distributive justice, interactional justice, and formal procedures). Respondents were 287 teachers from 12 schools in northern Israel. The 12 principals of these schools provided the data on OCB for the employees. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that the data supported the mediated model, namely, the relationship between OC and OCB was mediated by variables representing justice in the workplace. The data also showed that OC, particularly perceptions about the principals' leadership style, made a unique and significant contribution to the understanding of OCB. Implications for the continuing examination of OCB are discussed.
