Tuesday, September 6, 2016
 
Investigators with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division, Atlanta District Office, found that Roadmaster Transportation Inc. violated the wage requirements of the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act. The trucking company failed to pay drivers the prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits required by law as part of its contract with the U.S. Postal Service. The company transports mail and packages for the USPS in Alabama and Georgia.

Roadmaster will comply with the SCA and has paid 99 workers $429,176 in back wages and $541,979 in fringe benefits, totaling $971,155.  The SCA requires contractors and subcontractors performing services on prime contracts in excess of $2,500 to pay service employees in various classes no less than the prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits found in the locality, or the rates contained in a predecessor contractor’s collective bargaining agreement.
