Prevailing Rate of Wage Emergency Corrections

As per RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011 and as was published on the internet on February 1, 2010, the industrial statistician has determined the statewide prevailing rates of wage. These prevailing rates of wage are effective for public works projects bid on or after March 3, 2010. On March 2, 2010, the industrial statistician and director of labor and industries made an emergency correction to these rates. The corrected rates became effective immediately on March 3, 2010, per WAC 296-127-011. Here is a summary of the trades and counties affected by this correction.

1. Brick Mason: Clark and Grant.

2. Construction Site Surveyor: Chelan, Grays Harbor, King, Kitsap, Lewis, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish, Spokane, Stevens, Thurston and Whatcom.

3. Drywall Tapers: Franklin and Skagit.

4. Glaziers: Island, Whatcom and Yakima.

Every contractor and subcontractor on every public works project must file a statement of intent to pay prevailing wages and an affidavit of wages paid. Both forms must be filed on every project. The filing of the affidavit of wages paid does not set aside the requirement to also file the statement of intent to pay prevailing wages. The department may fine contractors $500 for failure to file these forms.
