Public Councils & Committees

The Bureau of Labor and Industries has several public bodies that support its work.

Oregon State Apprenticeship and Training Council

The Oregon State Apprenticeship and Training Council (OSATC) is the governing body that approves new apprenticeship committees, programs, and policies. It also makes decisions about individual apprentices’ registration, discipline, and placement.

For more information, see Oregon State Apprenticeship and Training Council.

Prevailing Wage Rate Committee

The committee assists the Labor Commissioner in the administration of the Prevailing Wage Rate Law. Advisory committee members are appointed by the Labor Commissioner. Members include representatives from management and labor in the building and construction industry who perform work on public works contracts and other interested parties.

There are currently vacancies on the committee for representatives from both labor and management. If you are interested in serving on the Prevailing Wage Advisory Committee in the future, please submit a brief letter summarizing your background and interest in the committee to Wage and Hour Division Administrator Sonia Ramirez at
