U.S. Ninth Circuit Court Grants DIR Request for Stay on Permanent Injunction Blocking Enforcement of AB 219 Prevailing Wage Requirements for Ready-Mix Concrete Suppliers

 

On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Department of Industrial Relations’ (DIR) request for a stay of the U.S. District Court Order blocking the Labor Commissioner’s enforcement of AB 219 prevailing wage requirements for ready-mix concrete suppliers. The order had prohibited DIR and the Labor Commissioner from enforcing new prevailing wage requirements on the delivery of ready-mix concrete to public works projects. The department will enforce all prevailing wage requirements pursuant to AB 219.

 

DIR’s fact sheet and FAQs contain more information on the requirements for ready-mix concrete work on public works projects.
