Explanations

PUTNAM COUNTY

OPERATING ENGINEERS (EAST) - That part of the county east of the
Illinois River.

The following list is considered as those days for which holiday rates
of wages for work performed apply: New Years Day, Memorial Day,
Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and
Veterans Day in some classifications/counties.  Generally, any of
these holidays which fall on a Sunday is celebrated on the following
Monday.  This then makes work performed on that Monday payable at the
appropriate overtime rate for holiday pay. Common practice in a given
local may alter certain days of celebration.  If in doubt, please
check with IDOL.

Oil and chip resealing (O&C) means the application of road oils and
liquid asphalt to coat an existing road surface, followed by
application of aggregate chips or gravel to coated surface, and
subsequent rolling of material to seal the surface.
