HAGATNA, GUAM – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is asking businesses in Guam’s building, heavy, highway and residential construction industries to complete a survey to help the agency establish prevailing wage rates, as required under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts.

Not limited to federally funded construction projects, the survey includes active building, heavy, highway and residential construction projects in Guam between May 1, 2020, and April 30, 2021.

The DBRA direct the department to set prevailing wage rates that should 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 Wage and Hour Division will send notification letters and data collection forms (WD-10s) to interested parties and contractors known to the agency. To be included, postmark all data by Aug. 31, 2021. You can also complete the survey online. You do not need to receive a letter to participate in the 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.
