dc.description.abstract This study examined work-family conflict as a predictor of turnover intention, and the moderating role that resilience may have had on this relationship. Participants were bluecollar workers (N = 136) within the chemical-specialty industry in the Western Cape. Exploratory factor analysis illustrated the unidimensionality of work-family conflict, however there was a strong theoretical argument to treat work-family conflict as separate dimensions for further analysis. Higher levels of strain-based conflict were reported by female blue-collar workers than by male blue-collar workers. Simple regression analysis showed that strain-based conflict explained a significant proportion of the variance in turnover intention; however time-based conflict was found not to predict turnover intention in this model. The results for the moderating effect of resilience on the relationship between strain-based conflict and turnover intention were not significant. Implications for management working in blue-collar environments are discussed. en_ZA
