Previously; in the Malaysian context; the government has introduced some major plans.

The transformation programs have brought in new changes to employment sector that has lead to drastic changes in public and private sector administration. Despite all the efforts introduced; the landscape of trade union movement remains unchanged in certain aspects. Hence; this study explored factors that may predict members commitment toward their unions. A survey questionnaire was employed and data was collected from a random sample of 395 members. Based on regression analysis; the results generally showed strong relationship between the factors and union commitment dimensions which resulted in partial acceptance of the hypotheses formulated. Factors like general union beliefs; union satisfaction; and union leadership significantly influenced the value union commitment dimension; while only union instrumentality influenced instrumental union commitment dimension. From the research findings; some implications are discussed. Limitation and suggestions for future research were also highlighted.
