This study explores the effects of union membership and employee residency on employee understanding of organizational mission/goals and task significance. A survey soliciting information concerning organizational mission/goals and task significance was completed by a randomly selected group of Lansing City Hall employees. It was hypothesized that union membership predicts lower organizational mission/goal understanding and task significance when compared to non-union employees. It was also hypothesized that non-City residents would also have lower measures of organizational mission/goal understanding and task significance compared to City residents.
