The present research was conducted on a sample of managers from a public sector organization. It explores the role of trust in management as a moderator of stress between the fear of loss of job features and affective commitment to change. The research employed Affective Commitment to Change (Herscovitch & Meyer, 2002), Qualitative Job Insecurity (Hellgren, Sverke, & Isaksson, 1999), and Trust in Management (Brockner, Siegel, Daly, Tyler, & Martin, 1997) to measure research variables. Hierachical regression analysis provided support for a negaitve relation between affective commitment to change and qualitative job insecurity and a positive relation with trust in management. Support was also found for a moderating role of trust in management on the negative relationship between qualitative job insecurity and affective commitment to change. The limitations of the study are provided along with managerial implications of the research.
