Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER) Grievance Tracking System

The Governor's Office of Employee Relations (GOER) created the Grievance Tracking System to collect information on employee grievances and grieved disciplinary proceedings from all New York State Executive Branch agencies from 1984 to 1990. The system contains two master files, the Grievance Data File and the Discipline Data File. Personal identifiers have been suppressed in each file type. The fourteen annual files are available in two formats: nine- track magnetic tape in IBM standard label EBCDIC and 3.5 inch floppy discs in ASCII format.

The Users' Guide to the Grievance Tracking System, [Series 17089], describes the data collection method, illustrates the components of the database, and defines each data element utilized by the system. The guide also familiarizes the user with the contractual grievance and disciplinary procedures of New York State Executive Branch agencies.
