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.

    Sheet Metal Workers Local #10 believes in an a equal playing field for contractors to bid on Prevailing wage projects within the Local #10 contract areas which may mean more work for our members and Local #10 signatory Contractors. Your participation in the prevailing wage survey has been and continues to be a great benefit to our industry. We would like to thank you for your past 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.

    Local 10 is implementing an industry standard software program that will help us gather the information from the surveys taken on projects throughout each county and contract area. We have added the survey form for your use so you can see what information we need to properly enter to the state, and encourage you to use this same form throughout the year.

Please use the forms on this page.
