Labor and Employee Relations

Seattle Public Schools Labor and Employee Relations

Labor and Employee Relations is responsible for the District’s relationship with represented and non-represented employees. It is responsible for administering Collective Bargaining Agreements and policies impacting all employees, including contract grievance procedures, 504 accommodations and allegations of violations of District policies governing workplace conduct.

How to Report Concerns and Complaints

It is the process for all complaints and/or concerns be brought to the employee’s immediate supervisor and/or the School Leader. This process ensures that resolutions come from the lowest level possible.

If no resolution is made at the lowest level or if the complaint/concern involves the employee’s supervisor (i.e. a School Leader), see below for forms and instructions on submitting complaints/concerns to Labor & Employee Relations.

Safety Concerns

Safety is always our number one priority. We encourage students, parents/guardians, volunteers and staff to report all safety concerns to any of our staff members or to submit concerns via Let’s Talk, our online tip reporting system.

Every concern that is reported in the Let’s Talk system immediately notifies our administrators so they can investigate and take appropriate action. Reports may be filed anonymously through this system. However, the more information we are provided with, the easier it is for us to address concerns in a timely manner.

Note: Reported concerns, anonymous concerns included, may not lead to discipline.
