Abstract [en]

Downsizing is a topic that has received growing recognition along with the increased flexibility of the labor market, and numerous studies show strong negative reactions among the survivors. However, whereas the bulk of research suggests that downsizing may impair employees' well-being, attitudes toward the organization, and performance less is known about how employees perceive their union in the downsizing process Indeed, numerous institutions are likely to have an influence over how layoffs are being carried through - among them unions - and it could readily be assumed that employees in downsizing organizations will evaluate the role played by these different actors. For instance, employees who perceive that their union treats the members in a just and fair way and is capable of representing their interests are likely to express positive attitudes toward their union. In contrast, members' union attitudes could be expected to become more negative if the performance of the union is evaluated in a less favorable way.
