Prevailing Wage

What is Prevailing Wage?

    Prevailing Wage is defined as the hourly wage, usual benefits and overtime. Prevailing wages are established, by the Department of Labor & Industries, for each trade and occupation employed in the performance of public work. They are established separately for each county, and are reflective of local wage conditions. Rates are developed from surveys and collective bargaining agreements.

This in turn may mean more work for our members and Local #10 signatory Contractors. Your participation in the prevailing wage surveys has been and continues to be a great benefit to our industry. We would like to thank you for your past and future support. Working together with you we would like to set the wage in all 87 counties where the work is performed by Local 10 Sheet Metal Workers.
