Proofing Language and Profit Sharing Spelled Out

Jul 28 - Profit sharing is spelled out in the Compensation Section. In a complex document of nearly 400 pages with hundreds of cross referenced sections, there must be hundreds of reviews of the document to ensure every word has been updated. This process continues until the final print of a contract after ratification. There is no negotiations that take place during proofreading. The Tentative Agreement itself is final.
