Work commitment in relation to withdrawal intentions and union effectiveness

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article assesses how forms of work commitments (job, occupational, union, and organization commitment) are related to withdrawal intentions and union effectiveness. Using a matrix measurement approach for work commitment (WC), 129 white-collar employees from three private industrial firms in Israel were surveyed. The findings indicate that almost all of the outcome variables are affected by WC forms. When job satisfaction was included in the equations, it contributed to the explained variance mainly in the case of withdrawal intentions. The results are discussed in terms of their implications for future investigation into WC, and on the need for a new conceptual framework of the relationships among WC, job satisfaction, and work outcomes.
