TEMPE, Ariz. – January 9, 2019 – Our clients were victorious in the recent U.S. Department of Labor (U.S. DOL) New Mexico metropolitan counties prevailing wage survey for Insulators, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Electricians, and Sheet Metal Workers. Wages will now be required to reflect compensation that matches the skills of these highly trained workers.

“New Mexico families and workers won again today,” said TCLG managing partner Israel Torres. “Our compliance team is committed to making a difference in the lives of working families.  DOL surveys are critical to maintaining the wages of these workers who spend years learning their trade.”

The Secretary of Labor establishes the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates by trade classification, type of work and geographic location through U.S. DOL surveys. As the DOL conducts surveys infrequently, it is critical that union trades be part of the process to secure the prevailing rate. Our compliance staff plays a key role in ensuring participation in the wage survey process.

Our survey services help protect the prevailing wage rate, allowing contractors to continue to competitively bid on federally funded projects. Our team understands how to navigate the complex survey process that requires consistency in identifying trade classifications and jurisdictions. By applying our knowledge and expertise, we have produced successful results for our clients.

We provide a variety of consulting services, including regulatory compliance and public and government relations, to clients across the United States.  We specialize in Davis-Bacon surveys and prevailing wage compliance for local unions, contractor associations and building trades’ organizations.
