Prevailing Wage Rates for Public Works Contracts in Oregon

In January and July of each year, the Oregon Labor and Industries publishes the prevailing wage rates that are required to be paid to workers on non-residential public works projects in the state of Oregon. Quarterly updates are published in April and October.

A separate publication, entitled “Definitions of Covered Occupations for Public Works Contracts in Oregon,” provides occupational definitions used to classify the duties performed on public works projects.
