Prevailing Rate of Wage Emergency Correction for Drywall Tapers

Pursuant to RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011, on March 14, 2011, the industrial statistician and director of labor and industries made a correction to the prevailing rates of wage. Pursuant to WAC 296-127-011, the corrected rates will become effective immediately on March 14, 2011.

This wage rate correction affects the trade drywall tapers in Spokane County.

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.
