Final Prevailing Wage Reminder - Due May 27th to The Locals
The Plumbers and Pipefitters Locals are putting together the prevailing wage rates for all counties.ALLcontractorson ANY type of project may participate in the prevailing wage survey.
St. Paul Plumbers 34 are requesting rates from Goodhue County.
Minneapolis Pipefitters 539 are requesting rates from Mille lacs, Scott, Isanti, Chippewa, Pope, Lac qui Parle, Todd Counties.
Setting the wage rate in all counties eliminates unfair contractors' ability to pay sub-standard wages on publicly funded projects and helps to keep contractors working. The last few years non-signatory contractors have steadily increased the number of surveys they turn in and have set the prevailing wage rate in many counties for some crafts.
