Notice of Prevailing Rate of Wage Change - Power Equipment Operators

As per RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011 the Department of Labor and Industries has determined that the prevailing rate of wage published on February 3, 2004 (WSR 04-04-077) for the Power Equipment Operator's classifications in Chelan, Clallam, Douglas, Grays Harbor, Island, Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Pierce, Skagit, Snohomish, Thurston, Whatcom and Yakima counties were inadvertently updated. Effective immediately, the correct wage rates for this classification in these counties should be those that took effect on August 31, 2003. These wage rates should not have been changed until the next wage update cycle in August of 2004.

The department has determined that this change is necessary to correct an error that was made in updating these wages. Absent this change, L&I will be enforcing an incorrect prevailing wage, which irreparably harms contractors, workers and the people of the state of Washington. This correction is necessary to ensure the correct application of prevailing wages and the general welfare.
