Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using survey data collected from 91 full-time union officials in New Zealand, this article tests the proposition that difference in career stage helps explain work and career related attitudes. General support was found for the propisition. In addition, the way that career stage waas defined affected the pattern of relations found to be significant. Age as a measure appeared to be more importnat for variable related to life issues, while occupational tenure was more important for variables associated with the work itself. Some implications of the findings are discussed.
