25. Commission Considers Prevailing Wage Nominees -

Shelby County Commissioners take up the issue this afternoon of who to appoint to a Prevailing Wage Commission. The five-member commission is the next step in enforcing a prevailing wage ordinance passed a year ago by the commission.

The ordinance sets an hourly pay scale above minimum wage for workers on county funded construction projects.

But the picks by interim Shelby County Mayor Joe Ford have drawn some resistance from members of the commission, who vote the nominees up or down.

The commission meeting will begin Monday at 1:30 p.m. at the Vasco Smith County Administration Building, 160 N. Main St.

Ford has already replaced two of his five choices after Commissioner Deidre Malone complained that women weren’t represented.

Two of the five appointees are women.

“The debate about the prevailing wage was about a year ago,” said Commissioner Steve Mulroy in committee sessions last week. “If it’s on the books, we ought to enforce it.”

Mulroy, who was a vocal supporter of the 2009 ordinance, is Ford’s choice for the slot to be held by a representative of the County Commission.

Commissioner Sidney Chism, a retired Teamsters union leader, chafed at the choice of Paul Shaffer, of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) local 474, as the building trades representative.

“Look, I don’t want to throw a monkey wrench into the mayor’s proposal to have a committee set up,” Chism said. “I understand the philosophy behind what he’s trying to do. But there’s more than one organization.”

Mulroy noted that the union representation must come specifically from the building trades council of union under terms of the ordinance.

Ultimately, the committee vote on the appointments was a tie meaning it will have a negative recommendation at Monday’s meeting of the full commission.
