Workforce Week: 

WASHINGTON, D.C. Feb. 8– Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) today announced that nearly 170 of the top construction apprentices and trainees in the country will compete in the 30th annual National Craft Championships, March 1-2 during ABC’s Workforce Week ‘17 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Competitors from 28 states will contend for gold, silver and bronze medals and a safety award in 13 competitions representing 11 crafts. The two-day competition includes a written exam and a hands-on, practical test where competitors will demonstrate their high-level craftsmanship and safety best practices. 

“The National Craft Championships is a great opportunity to show off the exceptionally skilled and well-trained craftsmen and women that work on Associated Builders and Contractors member jobsites,” said 2017 ABC National Chair Chuck Goodrich, president of Gaylor Electric Inc. Indianapolis. “ABC looks forward to showing off the very best the merit shop construction industry has to offer, including six Gaylor Electric apprentices, and drawing needed attention to the terrific career opportunities available in the construction industry.”

The annual National Craft Championships was first held in Orlando, Fla., in 1987. Apprentices and craft trainees will compete in:

Contractor Alert:

Electronic Certified Payroll (eCPR)  Reporting On Public Works Projects

Effective immediately, enforcement of the eCPR requirement is hereby temporarily stayed pending outreach, education and upgrades to the eCPR system that will allow contractors and subcontractors to more easily submit CPRs into DIR’s system. DIR is currently exploring an alternative reporting format that will facilitate compliance with the eCPR requirements for contractors and subcontractors that are having difficulty. DIR anticipates that the upgrades should be completed by June 2016.

This notice only applies to the obligation to submit CPRs into DIR’s eCPR system. Awarding bodies must still ensure that contractors and subcontractors are registered under DIR’s contractor registration system and in compliance with all other prevailing wage laws including, but not limited to, Labor Code section 1776 (Reporting of Certified Payroll Records).

This notice also does not affect the ability or obligation of labor compliance personnel, or rights of other interested parties, to request and obtain certified payroll records.

Public Works Reforms (SB 854)

IMPORTANT NOTICE to all contractors who bid on a public works project in California on or after March 1, 2015, or who were awarded such a project on or after April 1, 2015: 

All DIR Public Works contractor registrations obtained before July 1, 2015, expired at the end of that fiscal year, on June 30, 2015. If you activated your registration on or after July 1, 2015, you do not need to renew. Your registration is valid through Jun 30, 2016.

Starting on January 1, 2016, the penalty for lapsed contractor registration (in addition to the $300
annual renewal fee) will increase from $300 to $2,000.

Please note that if you were registered last year and have not bid on or worked on any public works projects requiring registration on or after July 1, 2015, your registration has expired but is not lapsed, and you can renew for this fiscal year without incurring any penalties.

If you believe your PW contractor registration is active, we encourage you to:
Use the active contractor registration search tool to locate and confirm your active registration. (The best way to search is to fill out the just the registration number or the license number.)
If your registration does not come up, it may have expired or you may never have been registered, and you should visit the registration/renewal page.



Assembly Bill 842 sponsored by Associated Builders and Contractors addresses the current problem of construction contractors paying twice for healthcare and ensures that Affordable Care Act (ACA)-compliant health plans provided by employers are accepted by State Government Standards.
