Pursuant to RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020 and WAC 296-127-011, on September 29, 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 in thirty days on October 29, 2011.

This wage rate correction affects the trade elevator constructors. This correction will affect the following southwestern Washington counties: Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Pacific, Skamania, and Wahkiakum.

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.
