Background: Building trades workers employed at the Department of Facilities and Maintenance Services have historically been paid the prevailing wages, pursuant to the action of the Board on May 3, 1931 (Proc. pp. 555-556). This policy was incorporated in Section 2.32 of the Board’s Rules (currently Administrative Policy 6.21) and was further affirmed by the Board in December 1962 (Proc. 12-11-62, pp. 301-302; 12-19-62, pp. 303-304). Building trades workers employed at the Department of Facilities and Maintenance Services last received the prevailing wage rates effective July 2017.
