U. S. Department of Labor to Survey Wage Rates for WV Highway Work

Author: Cheryl/Monday, April 25, 2022/Categories: News

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division has announced its Davis-Bacon Wage Survey Plan set to begin in 2022. Construction workers working on Davis-Bacon and related Acts (DBRA) covered contracts must be paid prevailing wages, which are determined by surveys of wages paid on construction projects underway or recently completed within a geographic area. 

As the Wage and Hour Division begins its wage survey process, they are reaching out to contractors, contracting agencies, unions, and others in the construction industry to ensure that all stakeholders have an opportunity to participate in the wage survey process.

The division is planning wage rate surveys for Highway construction in: West Virginia, Georgia, Florida and New Hampshire. Stakeholders can find the list of 2022 currently planned surveys by clicking here, as well as the status of surveys that are currently in progress. The survey is scheduled for completion May 31.

The criteria used to determine areas where a survey should be performed are:

1.    Age of the previous survey

2.    Federal procurement agency plans for construction

3.    Whether stakeholders have requested a new survey of a construction type in a state or locality

4.    Whether public and private data reviews show wages in a locality have sufficiently changed to warrant a new wage determination

The Wage and Hour Division will provide outreach in each survey area to inform stakeholders how to participate in the survey process. CAWV members that have suggestions regarding geographic areas and construction types that they believe should be considered for the 2022 or 2023 Survey Plan can send their suggestions via email to DB-Wage-Survey-Request@dol.gov.
