Response #2:Caltrans is enforcing labor code section 1720.9, the requirements of AB219 do apply.

Assembly Bill 219, codified as Labor Code section 1720.9, expands the definition of "public works" to include "the hauling and delivery of ready-mixed concrete to carry out a public works contract, with respect to contracts involving any state agency. " This new statute supersedes an earlier Department of Industrial Relations determination that distinguished work performed at a public works construction site from the supply of construction materials, in this case ready-mixed concrete..

In short, for public works contracts that are awarded on or after July 1, 2016, the hauling and delivery of ready-mixed concrete from a commercial plant to a public works job will be subject to California’s prevailing wage law. Hauling and delivery essentially means the work that ready-mix drivers do, including receiving the concrete at the supplier, transporting it to the project, and returning to the plant or supplier.
