Scope and Content Note

This series consists of grievance files that were settled or withdrawn prior to arbitration and "step three grievance" files. Grievance files that were settled or withdrawn prior to arbitration contain initial grievance statements, a response from the Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER), a memorandum stating the disposition of the case, and in some cases, a small amount of background material. "Step three grievances" (grievances and grieved disciplines), which are initially handled in the executive state agency where the claim originates and then appealed to and decided by GOER, include notices of review and related correspondence, grievance forms and exhibits, and copies of decisions of the Grievance Appeals Board.

18748-97: This accretion consists of grievance files submitted in 1985. The grievances cover a variety of issues, frequently including out-of-title work; leave, time absent, and scheduling disputes; discriminatory practices; and harassment. A few grievances which were not considered because of lack of documentation, lack of timely filing, or because of some other technicality are also present.

18748-97A: This accretion documents those grievances appealed from executive branch agencies during 1986 and forwarded to the Governor's Office of Employee Relations for resolution. The records include notices of review and related correspondence, grievance forms and exhibits, and copies of decisions of the Grievance Appeals Board.

18748-99: The bulk of this accretion documents those grievances appealed from executive branch agencies during 1987 and forwarded to the Governor's Office of Employee Relations for resolution. Records include notices of review and related correspondence, grievance forms and exhibits, and copies of decisions of the Grievance Appeals Board.

18748-00: This simple accretion consists of Step Three grievance files numbered 88-01-125 to 89-01-1119. These particular grievances were adjudicated by the Governor's Office of Employee Relations between 1988 and 1989.
