Boeing employees who were called to active military duty under 9/11-related orders between June 2004 and March 2006 will receive a $3,000 lump sum payment from Boeing in recognition of their service.
This is the second such payment, in the same amount, Boeing has provided to employees serving in the military. The first payment was made in June 2004 to employees called to active military duty between September 2001 and May 2004. All Boeing employees and employees of its U.S. subsidiaries are eligible for the second payment, which will be made later this month. There are approximately 375 eligible recipients at Boeing and its U.S. subsidiaries.
"We are proud of your service and grateful for the work you have done to keep our country safe," Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney told eligible employees in a letter.
The lump sum payment is in addition to the salary differential Boeing pays employees on military leave.
