This article comments on the results obtained by the authoresses after replication with a Colombian sample of a study made in the United States and Mexico, in order to elucidate the variables that determine civic comportment in an organization. These data produce a factorial structure of civic conduct quite similar to that regularly obtained in the American and Mexico and samples. It is also found that important antecedents, such as satisfaction, confidence in ones immediate superior, and distributive justice behaved as expected in this sample, but the testing of confidence as a mediator did not provide the expected results. Explanations are proposed for these results, and based on them and within the limitations of the study, certain lines for future research are proposed.
