US Department of Labor seeks Guam building, residential, heavy and highway construction industries’ input for wage survey
HAGATNA, GUAM – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is asking Guam’s building, residential, heavy and highway construction employers to help the agency establish accurate rates and complete wage determination by participating in a prevailing wage survey. The federal Davis-Bacon and Related Acts requires prevailing wages be paid to workers on federal and federally funded projects.
The survey – not limited to federally funded construction projects – includes active building, residential, heavy and highway construction projects in Guam between May 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021.
The DBRA direct the department to set the prevailing wage rates that reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place. Full participation by contractors and interested parties allows the department to establish accurate prevailing wages and create complete wage determinations. In turn, accurate wages and complete determinations reduce the need for contractors to request additional classifications.
The division is currently collecting data electronically and via data collection forms, also known as WD-10s, until Aug. 31, 2021. Postmark all submitted surveys or complete the survey online by Aug. 31, 2021, to be included. Learn more about the prevailing wage survey.
If you have questions regarding the survey process or forms, contact Luis Cabuhat at (415) 241-3538 or Rose Huynh at (415) 241-3539.
