What labor hours are to be counted?
Labor hours are the total hours performed by all workers (apprentice or journeyman) receiving an hourly wage who are directly employed on the project site including hours performed by workers employed by the prime contractor and all subcontractors. Labor hours do not include hours worked by foremen, superintendents, owners and workers who are not subject to prevailing wage requirements. Be sure to take this into consideration when filling out the Apprentice Monthly Utilization Report.


Truck drivers should only be reported if they spend the majority of their shift (4 or more hours) on the project site. You do not track how many hours a driver was on or off site, simply report all hours for drivers that spend most of their time on site and exclude all hours for truck drivers that spend most of their time off site (on their way to/from the job). You will only report hours for employees working on the project site. The owner/operator would not be included. Any employees receiving an hourly wage would be included.
