Weigh in on Wage:

Baltimore City’s Office of Civil Rights and the Wage Commission seeks input on Wage Rate Changes and the Annual Survey process

Baltimore, MD_ The Baltimore City Office of Civil Rights & Wage Enforcement’s (BCOCRWE) Wage Commission has scheduled a meeting on April 3rd, 2:00pm –4:00pm, 2019 in The Carpenter’s Union Hall, located at 801 West Patapsco Avenue Baltimore, MD 21230 to discuss proposed changes to the current number of wage rates, and the annual Wage Rate Survey process.

The Wage Rate Survey process has in the past been used to determine the prevailing rates for city contracts. The city is seeking input on using a new method to determine the price and is asking for feedback from workers on whether to proceed.

Also, the Wage Commission is seeking feedback on reducing the current number of classifications for the Prevailing Wage Rate. The city currently has five (5) designations for the prevailing wage rates. The Wage Commission would like to see that number reduced to two (Building & Highways) to make the process more efficient.

Darnell Ingram, director of the BCORCWE which houses the Wage Commission, is an attorney and an engineer. He says “streamlining the process for determining the prevailing wage rate for the city can increase efficiency, and provide a better data stream from which more equitable rates can result. The result would be good for contractors, sub-contractors, and enforcement purposes”.

The two-hour meeting at the Carpenter’s Union Hall is open to current city contract holders, Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) as well as those interested in learning more about how to obtain city contracts. For more information on the Wage Commission contact Larry Ennels by calling: 410-396-4839.
