Abstract

This paper examined the relationship between several exchange variables (organizational justice, organizational support, and psychological contracts) and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and in-role performance. The setting of this study was Arab teachers in Israel. Four-hundred and forty-six questionnaires were distributed in 13 Arab schools in the North of Israel. Usable questionnaires were returned by 291 teachers, a response rate of 65 %. OCB and in-role performance were reported by the principals of the schools. The findings using HLM showed a weak effect of organizational justice on the outcome variables, and a stronger effect of perceived organizational support and psychological contract breach. Some of the findings differ significantly from results typically found in Western samples. The findings are discussed in relation to the traditional Arab culture examined here.
