Prevailing Wage Protected In Irvine

Building Trades News reports that “The City of Irvine has adopted prevailing wage as its official policy, making it possible for union workers to construct millions of dollars in projects during fiscal 2011-2012.”

The enforcement of the prevailing wage, which passed by a 3-2 vote, means that contractors who prefer union labor can now bid on construction projects with the appropriate wage scales protected and the assurance that local workers will work on local projects, thus boosting local communities and economies.

“Prevailing wage promotes the use of local workforce over cheap labor elsewhere,” Jim Adams, Orange County representative for the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council told BTN. “We believe that prevailing wages will result in having a better selection of top-notch contractors using skilled local workers. And the Building Trades and its affiliated local unions here tonight stand ready to support you in providing a prevailing wage for city-funded projects.”
