We parameterize the non-universal couplings of t-t-Z and t-b-W in the electroweak chiral lagrangian approach, and examine the constraints on these parameters from the LEP data. We also study how the SLC, Tevatron, LHC and NLC can improve the measurement of these couplings. Different symmetry breaking scenarios imply different correlations among these couplings, whose measurement will then provide a means to probe the electroweak symmetry breaking sector.
