Reactance and Intentionality Attributions as Determinants of the Intent to File a Grievance.
Gordon, Michael E.; Bowlby, Roger L.
Personnel Psychology, v42 n2 p309-29 Sum 1989
Experimental studies were conducted in two unions to examine the effects of perceptual variables--reactance and intentionality attributions--on the intent to seek redress from management action. Based on participants' responses to a series of vignettes, both studies demonstrated that greater threat and dispositional attributions provoked stronger intent to file a grievance. (TE)
