If you prefer to review the TAs in the context of the contract, they are incorporated into the 2014-2017 Elgin Agreement. In addition to the TAs a significant amount of language cleanup was performed by a subgroup and approved by the joint bargaining team.
To ease navigating the document for the purpose of reviewing these changes, embedded comments, and TAs, we have color coded the table of contents in the Elgin Agreement as follows:
1. Yellow highlight – language cleanup that typically reflects eliminating language related to prior practice.
2. Green highlight – language bargained by the joint bargaining teams and typically reflects new language
3. Blue highlight – language bargained and agreed to by the joint bargaining teams after being brought forward by the work of joint committeesTechnology note: If you open the file in your browser you can only read the comments if you use Internet Explorer. If you use Chrome then you’ll see comments exist but you won’t be able to read them. If you save the file to your computer then you can open it in Adobe and view the comments.
