Abstract

Past studies have pointed to the fact that union organisation form a significant relationship with the union effectiveness. However, there has been a paucity of studies on the role of the mediator and moderator among the constructs. In relation to this, this study aims to test the employer attitude as the mediator and the role of the type of union as the moderator among the constructs. A total of 676 respondents who are trade union officials in Selangor and the Federal Territory (Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur) were selected as the subjects in the study, where the selection was made via the stratified random sampling technique. Data were analysed using the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and the structural equation model (SEM) using AMOS 21 program. The path analysis conducted showed that the union effectiveness was significantly influenced by union organisation and employer attitude; employer attitude was significantly influenced by union organisation. However, the results also found that employer attitude and type of union were not the mediator and moderator respectively. This study also discussed the limitations and suggestions for future research.
