The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the manager trust and interactional justice perceptions and organizational silence behaviors of those teachers who work in primary and secondary schools. The research is based on the survey model and the population consists of 4761 teachers who worked in Samsun, Turkey. The sample of the study was chosen from 195 primary and secondary schools through a multi-stage sampling method. The study findings revealed that there exists a positive and highly significant relationship among teachers' interactional justice and their manager trust; a negative and mid-level significant relationship between their manager trust and their interactional justice; and a negative and mid-level significant relationship between their interactional justice and their manager trust, respectively. To list in order of importance, interactional justice and manager trust variables were found to be predictor variables for silence behavior and to represent 17% of change in the organizational silence behavior.
