*S$ 1.1 to 1.22, inclusive, issued under the authority contained in R.S. 161 ; 5 U.S.C. 22: interpret 49 Stat. 1011; 40 U.S.C., Sup., 276a to 276a-6.

*In $$ 1.1 to 1.21, inclusive, the numbers to the right of the decimal point correspond with the respective section numbers in Regulations 503, Secretary of Labor, Sept. 30, 1935.

1.2 Rule of decision. In making any such predetermination the rate of wages which the Secretary will regard as prevailing shall be

Page 1

(a) The rate of wages paid in the city, town, village, or other civil division of the State (hereinafter referred to as the locality) in which the work is to be performed, to the majority of those employed in the corresponding classes of laborers or mechanics (hereinafter referred to as the craft) on projects that are similar to the contract work; or

(b) In the event that there is not a majority paid at the same rate, then the rate paid to the greater number, provided such greater number constitutes 30 percent of those so employed; or

(c) In the event that less than 30 percent of those so employed receive the same rate, then the average rate.**

1.3 Preliminary information. Whenever a case is referred to the Solicitor of Labor he shall

(a) Ascertain whether the Secretary of Labor, the Wage Predetermination Board, or the Board of Labor Review of the Public Works Administration has made any previous wage determinations in the locality with respect to the crafts for which predetermination is requested;

(b) Ascertain whether the files of the Department contain any data with respect to wage rates in the locality;

(c) Collect and assemble such other pertinent data as may be available:

(d) Whenever such data is sufficient to show the prevailing rate (as previously defined) prepare recommendations and submit them to the Secretary.**

1.4 Appointment of referee. Whenever the Solicitor deems such data insufficient to enable the Secretary to make a determination with respect to all the crafts specified in the request of the contracting officer, he shall, in writing, appoint a referee who shall proceed to the locality of the project and conduct an investigation into the wages paid the crafts, concerning which there is insufficient data, and make a report.**

1.5 Appointees, expenses. (a) The Solicitor may appoint such referee from

(1) Employees of the Department of Labor with the consent of their respective superior officers;

(2) Qualified persons not otherwise employed by the Department of Labor, whose designation has been or may be approved by the Secretary of Labor.

(b) No employee of the United States Government shall receive any extra compensation for services rendered as a referee except that any person sent from Washington on official business shall bo entitled to the ordinary allowances for travel and subsistence during the period of his absence from the city. A referee not otherwise employed by the United States shall also be entitled to a salary of not more than $20 per diem.**

1.6 Survey of projects. It shall be the duty of the referee with respect to the crafts within the scope of his assignment, to secure

(a) Copies of written collective wage agreements between contractors and labor organizations (if any) in effect within the preceding year in the locality of the project; Page 2

**For statutory and source citations, see note to § 1.1.

(b) A list of all the major projects in the locality upon which the craft or crafts within the scope of his assignment were employed. Such list (to the extent that the information is obtainable) shall show in tabular form (1) the name of the projects covered by the survey or evidence, (2) the date when the work began, (3) the date when the work was finished, (4) the name of the general contractor and subcontractor directly concerned, (5) the name of the company, or (in the case of public contracts) the unit of government (Federal, State, county, city, etc.) letting the contract, (6) if a Federal contract, the name of the contracting agency and the source of funds (i. e., departmental appropriation, PWA, CWA, etc.), (7) the approximate number of the craft employed, (8) the theoretical wage which these workmen were entitled to receive, and (9) the actual wage which the men did receive if because of rebates, understandings, or other practices there was a departure from the theoretical rate.**

1.7 The scope of inquiry. The referee shall supplement such tabular presentation so far as possible by the affidavits of individual contractors and laborers, but need not include

(a) Projects completed more than 1 year before the date of request for predetermination (unless the number of recent projects is too small accurately to reflect local wage conditions);

(b) Projects outside the county or other civil division in which the work is to be performed (unless there has been no construction of similar character in recent years, in which event the report shall cover wage conditions in the nearest large city). The referee, unless otherwise directed, shall also report similar data with respect to classes of laborers and mechanics not listed in his assignment which are customarily employed upon similar projects in the locality.**

1.8 Special standards. In preparing a survey of projects in the form required by $ 1.6 (b) the referee shall make a special notation on the table if the rates hitherto paid have been fixed by

(a) The Secretary of Labor;

(b) The Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works, or some other Federal agency;.

(c) State, county, or municipal authority; and in the case of (c) shall, if possible, supplement this notation by including a copy of the local statute, ordinance, or regulation authorizing such rule. He shall not exclude such projects from consideration in making his finding as to the prevailing rate.**

CROSS REFERENCE: For Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works, see 44 CFR Chapter II.

1.9 Union standards. The referee shall also ascertain the local union rate and shall supplement it by

(a) Information citing the date of its adoption, the local in which it is in effect, and the method by which it was fixed; and

(b) Evidence of the proportion of the union and nonunion workers in the particular craft employed in the locality.**
