Predictors of Union Commitment among the Public Sector Employees

Husna Johari

Based on the dramatic changes taking place such as globalization; technological advancement and change in work structure have in reality exert some pressure on the movement of trade union around the globe. Previously; in the Malaysian context; the government has introduced some major plans. These include The Government Transformation Program (GTP) and Economic Transformation Program (ETP) as the key components of National Transformation Program (NTP). 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.
