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This series consists of grievance files that were settled or withdrawn prior to arbitration and "step three grievance" files. Grievance files that were settled or withdrawn prior to arbitration contain initial grievance statements, a response from the Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER), a memorandum stating the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.
