New Rules & Changes

Prevailing wage

Chapter 296-127, WAC

All updates for this rule:

Truck Drivers (WAC 296-127-01398)

The purpose of this rulemaking is to adopt a new rule as a prevailing wage scope of work description for Truck Drivers. This trade and occupation classification has not previously had any scope of work description but does have published prevailing rates of wage. Prior to 2000, the prevailing wage scope of work descriptions (if any) were promulgated by the Industrial Statistician on an as needed basis (and not adopted as administrative rule). No scope was promulgated for Truck Drivers. Clearly identifying the extent of this trade and occupation will assist in better identifying the exact universe to survey in order to establish the prevailing rate of wage for this trade and occupation classification as well as having a defensible description of the trade for any wage compliance matters. The changes were adopted 9/20/2016 and became effective on 11/1/2016.748.

The department received a petition to repeal the scope of work definitions for utilities construction and laborers in utilities construction. The petition states the repeal of these scopes of work would eliminate confusion for wage survey respondents, would allow the department to calculate a more accurate wage rate, and would be consistent with references from the federal Davis Bacon Act. The department will work with interested parties in deciding whether to repeal the scope of work definitions for utilities construction and laborers in utilities construction.608.
