Skilled Wage Rates: February 1, 2024

This is the skilled wage rate map for apprentices effective February 1, 2024. The skilled wage rates were determined through the local apprenticeship committee wage setting process, which took place between September 1, 2023 and November 15, 2023. For more information about skilled wage rates and the process for setting the rates, visit the Skilled Wage Rate Process page.

This map applies to non-union apprentices in the construction sector. If an apprentice is subject to a collective bargaining agreement, the rate specified in the agreement is the skilled wage rate.

Existing apprentice wages cannot be lowered to the new skilled wage rate without approval from BAS. Employers may increase compensation for apprentices above the skilled wage rate without BAS approval.
