AGC of NH to Meet with USDOL Regarding Upcoming Davis Bacon Survey

The Association was recently notified that the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, will begin conducting a Davis Bacon prevailing wage survey in New Hampshire within the next month. The department will be soliciting payroll information on all federal, state, local and privately funded building and heavy construction projects active between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015. AGC has scheduled a meeting with Regional Wage Specialist Ellen Hill for August 28th at 1:30 pm at the AGC of NH office in Bow to further discuss the survey. If you are interested in attending, please email Bobbie at blaflamme@agcnh.org or call (603) 225-2701.

Lowering WC Costs

AGC this session worked with other trade associations on fixing the high charges by hospital's and doctors when it comes to treating injured workers under Workers' Compensation. We are the only state in New England that does not have some regulation to limit medical costs charged to the program. The Department of Insurance recently analyzed these costs and found on average the Workers' Compensation program is being charged 2.5 times more than healthcare. A bill has been passed this session that will allow providers and insurers to negotiate costs starting this September.

AGC of NH, ME & VT Respond to Mandating PLAs on USACE Projects

AGC of NH joined the Maine and Vermont chapters in responding to a survey released by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) regarding the potential use of government-mandated Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on a large-scale construction project. The project is intended to build and renovate military and other federal facilities throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The chapters agree that PLAs cause negative effects in the construction industry by decreasing competition and placing unfair limitations on open shop contractors. The Association urged USACE to allow prime contractors to decide whether a PLA is appropriate for a particular project.
