The aim of the present study was to examine the interaction between individual perceptions of justice and behavioural actions during an organisational change process. The empirical material consisted of semi-structured interviews with 9 middle managers, working in a Swedish local government organisation. This organisation had recently accomplished a major organisational change. One result showed that individuals that experienced the change as procedural and distributive unfair tended to act in many different ways: they were loyal to the organisation but they also protested or tried to reduce the management's control over their work. The individuals that perceived the organisational change as procedural unfair but distributive fair tended to act either with loyalty or with withdrawal. The individuals that perceived the process as procedural and distributive fair acted more homogeneous: with loyalty to their organisation and management. In organisational change processes it is of particular importance to pay attention to procedural aspects.
