Protect LIUNA Members' Pay

LIUNA members are skilled workers who do the hard work of building America. Davis-Bacon prevailing wages ensure we earn fair pay and benefits. But non-union contractors are ignoring the rules, stealing from workers, and retaliating when workers speak out.

The Department of Labor has proposed a historic update to protect and strengthen Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rules that will:

  • Ramp up enforcement on law-breaking contractors
  • Stop wage theft and misclassification
  • Implement anti-retaliation protections
  • Modernize the process for setting wages to strengthen the wage floor
  • Return to the more fair and accurate three-step method in setting wages (a wage rate will be considered prevailing if it was paid to at least 30 percent of workers)*

The DOL's proposed updates are ground-breaking and monumental.

Strong Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rules are your lifeline to the middle-class. Send your message of support for these changes that will protect Laborers' wages, and ensure union contractors have a fair chance to bid on federal jobs.

Thank you for all of your efforts to urge the DOL to strengthen prevailing wages. The comment period has closed.
