Wage regulation in force: effective August 7, 2019, effective August 7, 2019 the definition of “normal diet” has been changed to WAC 296-127-010 (7) to “maintenance work done by ordinary state employees or by a county, commune or political sub-division created by their laws,” and the citation has changed from subsection 7 b) (iii) to 7 (b)). Chapter 60.28 RCW requires the commitment of the “public improvement missions” contract, unless the contract is for a federally funded transportation project. Contract maintenance often does not mean “public improvement.” If this is the case, there is no obligation to enter into a maintenance contract. Conventional maintenance conditions require predominant wages. RCW 39.04.010 (4) states: “All public works, including maintenance, when carried out contractually, must comply with Chapter 39.12 RCW.” This means that the current salary requirements, which would normally apply, are still valid even though maintenance work may not be obtained as public work. [T]he work, construction, transformation, repairs or improvements that are not carried out by ordinary maintenance work carried out at the expense of the state or municipality or which are, by law, a pledge or a royalty on land inside. … “Public works” do not include construction, transformation, repair or improvement work under contracts under RCW 36.102.060 (4) or development agreements under RCW 36,102.060 (7) or RCW 36.102.060 (8). RCW 39.08.010 requires a contractual loan through government or local contracts with any person or company in order to work.
This is a general requirement that applies to regular contractual maintenance. RCW 39.08.015 is responsible for the liability of the public body if the entity does not receive the required contractual loan. RCW 39.08.010 (3) offers a possible exemption from the contractual borrowing obligation: this definition applies to national wage law, Chapter 39.12 RCW. But what about the purchase of regular maintenance and chapter 39.04 RCW? RcW 39.04.010 (4) explicitly excludes “normal maintenance.”
