Labor Relations

Labor Relations provides technical and professional services to policy makers and City department managers, to advance effective, respectful and fair labor relations. This enhances the City's delivery of quality public services.

Management representatives for the City of Seattle and labor representatives of the majority of unions that represent employees of the City have worked diligently and deliberately to develop a relationship based upon mutual respect, openness, honesty, and accountability for mutual decisions. We're creating a labor relations environment that meets our respective interests, using strategies that build a productive relationship for the future. The parties have established a number of structures and statements of mutual understandings.
