As we enter the fourth quarter of 2023, we would like to remind members of the fourth annual service recognition bonus all members under National handling are due to receive this December. This payment is owed to any employee who performed active service for the Carrier between January 1, 2023, and November 30, 2023. Eligibility is further predicated on an employee either having an employment relationship on December 1, 2023, or having retired or passed away during the first 11 months of the year. Do not assume your employer will comply with the requirement to pay out this bonus on or before December 31st. Check your paystubs closely and inform your local chairman if you do not receive the bonus.
