Prevailing Wages and Supplements


Learn about prevailing wages and supplements.

Labor Law § 220 defines the prevailing rate of wage for a particular trade or occupation as the rate provided in local collective bargaining agreements between bona fide unions and construction industry employers. Prevailing supplements are defined as employment benefits paid other than in cash, such as health, welfare, retirement and vacation benefits, and the like, again as provided in local collective bargaining agreements. In each case, it is required that at least 30% of tradespersons in the locality work for employers who are party to such CBAs, but the 30% requirement is presumed in effect unless proven to the contrary for any particular region. This white paper reviews assigned wage rates and required supplements.
