An effort is made in this research to determine the correlations between primary school teachers' levels of confidence in their organization and their burnout levels and other variables. The research population is composed of teachers teaching in the primary schools located in the city center of Adiyaman in 2009-2010 academic year whereas the sample is made up of 325 teachers teaching at 13 primary schools chosen by using stratified sampling. "Personal information Forms," "a multi-purpose T scale" and "Maslach's Burnout Scale" were used so as to gather the data. Mann Whitney U, Kruskall Wallis H tests as well as Spearman's correlation analysis were employed in the analysis of the data obtained. Consequently, it was found out that the organizational trust level of the primary teachers was medium-level and their burnout levels were medium as well. By analyzing the data significant differences were found in the variables of age, branch and the number of teachers on the dimension of trust; in the variable of marital status in burn out dimension; and in the variables of seniority and age in the dimensions of trust and burn out levels between groups. On examining the correlations between organizational confidence levels and burnout levels, a low negative relation was found.
