Explanations

MERCER COUNTY

ELECTRICIAN (SOUTHEAST) - Townships of Ohio Grove, Suez, and North
Henderson.

The following list is considered as those days for which holiday rates
of wages for work performed apply: New Years Day, Memorial/Decoration
Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day,
Christmas Day. 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 such as the day after Thanksgiving for Veterans Day.
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.
