Prevailing Wages Scopes of Work Proposed for 3 Classifications

The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries is proposing to adopt scope of work descriptions for three classifications of labor for which prevailing wages exist, but not descriptions.

Public Hearing:  A public hearing will be held on December 9, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. at L&I's headquarters in Tumwater, Washington to consider testimony on the proposed scope of work descriptions for the following three classifications:
  • Dredge workers
  • Truck drivers
  • Ready mix truck drivers.  
Written Comments:  Written comments may also be submitted to L&I by e-mail at or by mail to Sally Elliott, Specialty Compliance Services Division, PO Box 44400, Olympia, WA 98504-4400.

Schedule for Adoption:  The changes, if adopted, would be added to the Washington Administrative Code (WAC).  L&I hopes to adopt the new regulations on January 18, 2011 with a tentative effective date of March 1, 2011.
