  • Abstract  The employee’s perceptions of organizational politics will increase due to the “uncertainty” of environment and “scarcity” of resources. It will also affect employee’s attitude and behavior. This study is based on the revision model of Perceptions of Organizational Politics (POP) proposed by Ferris et al. (2002). We investigate the relationship between the perceptions of organizational politics, the organizational citizenship behavior, and the organizational cynicism. Finally we further confirm the mediating effects of organizational cynicism.
     This study used the scales of 35 items collected by Dr. Chin-ming Ho and the other members of the last research team of POP in 2008. The research is based on the revision model of POP and questionnaire survey. The sample consisted of 1,890 employee selected from 40 organizations covering 9 industrial sectors in Taiwan. We further use of the structural equation modeling (SEM) to measure the relationship amongst the constructs. The perceptions of organizational politics have been reduced to three factors: general political behavior, going along to get ahead and pay and promotion policies. The major results of this study are as fallowing:
     1.The pay and promotion policies had negative effect on the organizational citizenship behavior.
     2.The perceptions of organizational politics had positive effect on the organizational cynicism.
     3.The organizational cynicism had negative effect on the organizational citizenship behavior.
     4.The perceptions of organizational politics had an indirect negative effect, through the mediating effects of organizational cynicism, in the organizational citizenship behavior.
