On January 5, 2022, the AFT Seattle Local 1789 Executive Board sent a Statement of No Confidence to Chancellor Pan, members of the Chancellor's Executive Cabinet, and SCD's Board of Trustees members. 

The statement reads: "After attempting to renegotiate safer conditions for faculty and students, as well as our colleges' staff and community, the AFT Seattle 1789 Executive Board hereby declares no confidence in the Chancellor, the Chancellor’s Executive Cabinet, and the Board of Trustees for the Seattle Colleges due to their decision to start Winter Quarter 2022 without new safety measures accounting for the surging Omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus. We support faculty’s call for a vote of no- confidence in District leadership and will work in collaboration with our membership to carry out this vote."
