Labor Relations

Human Resource Services – Labor Relations is available to assist employees, supervisors and administrators on a range of issues. We provide assistance and training to the University community regarding the interpretation and application of WSU’s Collective Bargaining Agreements (Contracts). We represent the University’s interest and manage the relationship between the University and its organized bargaining units by negotiating all Contracts and assisting with the administration of these contracts.
 

Under these collective bargaining agreements Labor Relations is responsible for:

  • Answering labor relations questions for employees, supervisors and administrators
  • Contract/Policy and Procedure Interpretation
  • Collective Bargaining
  • Grievance Administration
  • Labor/Management Relations
