Labor-Management Cooperation Committees and Cooperative Trusts fund a broad range of activities, some of which may or may not conform to the broad, ambiguous purposes listed in the Labor-Management Cooperation Act of 1978 (29 U.S.C. 175a).
Since 1978, the public has obtained the most comprehensive information about the activities and expenditures of Labor-Management Cooperation Committees through a series of Petitions to Review Prevailing Wage Determinations submitted in 2005 to the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) by Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of California under the authority of California Labor Code Section 1773.4 and California Code of Regulations Title 8, Section 16302. Below is some of the information collected during the review process to determine the correct prevailing wage for a few trades in a few geographic areas.
