Charter City can be Exempt from State Prevailing Wage Laws

State Building and Construction Trades Council of CA v. City of Vista was just decided by the California Supreme Court [No. S173586. July 2, 2012.].  This was a dispute involving contracts for the construction of public buildings by a charter city using only local funds, in which their contract did not require compliance with the state Prevailing Wage Laws.  Judgment for the City was granted by the Trial Court, Court of Appeals and now the California Supreme Court, and was affirmed where under California Constitution, art. XI, section 5, the wage matter is a “municipal affair” and therefore governed by its local ordinances.
