Travelers Commercial Lines commission reductions announced today

Travelers told us today that BOP (Masterpac), commercial auto, GL and umbrella commissions are being reduced effective January 2024. Marketing said expect 12/12. That's being rolled out nationwide except for some of the very large agencies. That's a very significant cut for us. Has anyone seen how profitable they are doing these days?
They forget who butters their bread. It's a shame that I need them as a market. What a disgrace.
 
Outside of carriers not writing certain lines of business are they the first one's to drop commissions on small commercial?

Back when I was in the field, we dropped our auto commission in MA (largest auto writer) and then everyone else followed.
