We believe both Bills will go a long way toward correcting the evils which we have pointed out. However, we tend to prefer H.R. 6088 because of its wider coverage and simplicity of administration.

We again thank you for the privilege accorded us to appear and express our views.

MR. JACK RUSSELL,
Grossbeck, Tea.

DEAR MR. RUSSELL: I finally reached Mrs. Morrow today and inquired if she had received the new wage determination dated October 22, 1970. She made a check while I was on the phone and advised me that a brief search of the contract file did not reveal the receipt of the wage determination but she would inquire through the other contracting officers to see if it had come into their offices. She was to let me know if they had received it... Sincerely yours,

J. P. HOLLOMON,

President.

MR. Jack RUSSELL,
Grossbeck, Tex.

DEAR MR. RUSSELL: As I explained to you by telephone on Tuesday, December 1, I did contact Mrs. Morrow of the Purchasing and Contracting Office of Fort Rucker by telephone concerning the wage determination that was recently published by the Department of Labor concerning the security guards at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Mrs. Morrow advised me that after consulting with the legal department that she was told that since we had already had a revised wage determination issued which was included into our present extended contract that it was not necessary to modify the contract to include a new wage determination.

I would have to assume that this is normal procedure since the new wage determination dated in October of 70 was issued after the contract year had begun and the revised wage determination dated December 18, 1969 was effective for the entire contract year of 1970–71. Sincerely yours,

J. P. HOLLOMON,

President.

Administrator, U.S. Department of Labor,
Wage and Hour and Public Contracts Division,
Office of Administrator,
Washington, D.C.

GENTLEMEN : Our Union is certified by the National Labor Relations Board as the bargaining representative for a unit of security guards employed by the Burns Detective Agency at Fremont, California. These guards are employed to perform security functions on a government project by Burns Detective Agency which was awarded a sub-contract for such services from the Federal Aviation Corporation, the prime contractor with the U.S. Government. The Burns Contract is effective from July 1, 1966, to June 30, 1967.

On June 9, 1966, your Department determinated the prevailing wage rate for this area to be $2.41 (No. WD 66–108). However, this determination did not include fringe benefits prevailing in the locality as required by Section 2(a) (2) of the Service Contract Act of 1965.

Although Burns Detective Agency is now paying its employees the prevailing rate of $2.41 per hour, it is refusing to pay any fringe benefits. Negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement are now stalled because Burns has informed our negotiators that its contract with the Federal Aviation Corporation contains no provision for payment of the normal fringe benefits enjoyed by other guard employees in the area.

Listed below are the major fringe benefits which other employers in the area under contract with this Union are paying their guard employees performing similar duties.
