Benefits and Pay


Offering competitive pay is one way the port demonstrates that you are a valued and important member of the team.

Ratified by the Port Commission, the Salary and Benefits Resolution establishes jobs, pay grades, salaries, allowances and adjustments for Port of Seattle employees not represented by a labor union. It also authorizes and establishes conditions in connection with benefits such as social security, unemployment, retirement, holidays, insurance benefits and other elements that make up the port’s total rewards program.

Non-represented employees may be eligible for annual pay increases through the pay-for-performance program. New employees may also be eligible for a completion-of-probation increase after successfully completing their first six months of employment at the Port.

Pay for employees represented by a labor union varies depending on the specific terms of the applicable collective bargaining agreement. Collective bargaining agreements are available for viewing on the Port's Labor Relations webpage.
