As per RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011 and as was published on the internet on August 2, 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 September 1, 2010. On October 15, 2010, the industrial statistician and director of labor and industries made a correction to these rates. The corrected rates become effective in thirty days on November 14, 2010, per WAC 296-127-011.

This wage rate correction affects the trades construction site surveyors in several counties.

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.

For more information on prevailing wage or a copy of the rates please visit our web site at www.lni.wa.gov/TradesLicensing/PrevailingWage/ or call (360) 902-5335.

Following are details to this correction.

Washington State Prevailing Wage



The PREVAILING WAGES listed here include both the hourly wage rate and the hourly rate of fringe benefits. On public works projects, worker's wage and benefit rates must add to not less than this total. A brief description of overtime calculation requirements are provided on the benefit code key.

Wage rates for construction site surveyors (see "surveyors" in the trade list) have been corrected as the result of a wage-and-hour survey in several counties.

Changes to the journey level wages also impact apprentice wages. Use the apprentice wage rates lookup page.
