Testing and Inspection Allocation 2020

Dear brothers/sisters,

We have been speaking to many of you over the last several months on how the 2020 increase should be divided. Some would like all on the check, and others would like a small increase to annuity and/or vacation. This survey is to collect as much input as possible for helping to make the allocation decisions. Please use the link below to access the survey and submit your allocation choice based on the group belonged to.

Thank you!
