Enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1931, the Davis-Bacon Act has been vital in protecting prevailing wages on federal projects in local areas and promoting high standards for the good of construction workers and their communities. State prevailing wage laws (also known as “little Davis-Bacon acts) provide similar protections on state funded projects. These laws help ensure that construction workers, including BAC members, are paid fair wages.

The International Masonry Institute (IMI) is a strategic alliance between the International Union of Bricklayers and the contractors who employ those members.  Through education, technical support, research and training the IMI works to provide a more efficient construction delivery system.

MDVA recognizes the sacrifices and courage Minnesotans took to defend our country.
