Abstract

Union commitment has received substantial attention of researchers over the past years. However, it seems that some issues related to the measurement of union commitment are still remained debatable. The dimensions or the factor structure and their relative significance are such critical issues. The present study examined the goodness of measure of union commitment in the Sri Lankan context. It was found that a three factor model of union commitment is held valid with significant level of reliability. These factors or dimensions were union loyalty, union responsibility and union beliefs. Further, ten, out of eleven items of the tested instrument were found to be relevant for measuring union commitment in the context of Sri Lanka.
