Abstract. The property $(w)$ is a variant of Weyl's theorem, for a bounded operator $T$ acting on a Banach space. In this note we consider the preservation of property $(w)$ under compact, or Riesz, or algebraic perturbations commuting with $T$. We shall also give some perturbation results on the generalized property $(gw)$.
