       4b.  For those employees who wish to have their pay checks and LES
       delivered by mail, but who do not wish to have them sent to their
       homes address, the Employer will establish and maintain a central
       location to which the employees checks and LES will be mailed.
       This location shall be within the Employer's spaces and employees
       may report there to pick up their checks and LES on payday.  The
       Employer will publicize this option and make it available to all
       unit employees.
