THE CITY OF DULUTH, MINNESOTA

Davis-Bacon / Prevailing Wage

NOTICE:  The MN Department of Labor & Industry is performing a prevailing wage survey.  I highly encourage all contractors to participate- the more contractors that participate, the more accurately wages will be reflected in the state wage determinations and will impact any projects with state funding.

To participate, go to the MN prevailing wage survey page

Note that entries are due by June 2, 2017.


 

City of Duluth prevailing wage rules stipulate that all laborers and mechanics working on a city project be paid prevailing wage as determined by the United States Department of Labor. This includes anyone performing manual labor on the project site, including administrative staff – owners, partners, executives, managers, etc.- when they are performing manual tasks, as well as truck drivers with few exceptions.  Also, all contractors and subcontractors working on the project (including trucking companies transporting materials with few exceptions) are required to submit documentation of prevailing wage payment.   The documentation requirements are broken down as follows:

  • All projects:
  • With federal funding (in addition to the requirements listed above for all projects):
    • Federal statement of compliance- the federal statement of compliance must accompany each payroll submitted. Note, however, that the city of Duluth still requires the MnDOT statement of compliance in addition to the federal statement of compliance.
  • With state of Minnesota funding (in addition to the requirements listed above for all projects):
