WAGE INFORMATION

Local 860 has targeted prevailing wage violators for two major reasons: (1) to create a level playing field for its union contractors; and (2) to increase market share. Under Ohio’s prevailing wage law, Local 860 is an “interested party” entitled to pursue prevailing wage violators who successfully outbid its union contractors.

Local 860 has filed several administrative complaints and two lawsuits against non-union, prevailing wage violators. As a result of one lawsuit, a non-union contractor signed an agreement with Local 860. Other contractors have paid back wages and attorney fees, thereby disgorging non-union contractors of some, if not all, profits they had earned on those projects.
Currently, Local 860 is pursuing two non-union contractors who have outbid Local 860s’ contractors on more than one occasion. While Local 860’s primary goal remains a resolution which includes signing these contractors, it is determined to send a clear message to these and other non-union contractors that they cannot operate in Local 860’s jurisdiction while undermining union contractors and violating the law.

Local 860 is now encouraging its union contractors to join the fight. At least two contractors have filed administrative complaints against non-union contractors.
