L&I Corrects Elevator Constructor Prevailing Wage Rates

On November 14, 2008, the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries published corrections to the prevailing wage rates for elevator constructors. The wages modify wages that were published on August 31, 2008, and affect a number of counties. In publishing the corrections, L&I noted that the revised wage rates would not become effective until December 14, 2008, consistent with the provisions of WAC 296-127-011.

This thirty day delay in the effective date of the corrections marks an improvement in how L&I administers corrections to prevailing wage rates. Yet to be seen is whether L&I will change the title of the prevailing wage document online on December 14th to reflect that the document includes corrections. Such a change would make inclusion of the correct prevailing wage rates in bidding documents much easier for public agencies.
