The Mail prepared in event of postal disruption
In light of a possible disruption of postal service, The Drumheller Mail is making alternative arrangements for readers to receive their news in a timely fashion.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers voted on Sunday, September 9 in favour of job action, and if no agreement is reached by September 26, there could be a lockout or strike. The Drumheller Mail has made alternative arrangements to continue to bring the news to readers.
“We have been through this same situation many times before,” said Ossie Sheddy, editor and publisher of The
Drumheller Mail. “We understand how important it is for our readers and customers to have the newspapers distributed in a timely manner.”
If there is a disruption, it may affect delivery starting with the September 26 edition of The Mail. Along with the various distribution boxes throughout the community, subscribers will be able to pick up their newspapers at designated mailboxes at Riverside Value Drug Mart, Freson Bros, Extra Foods, and of course The Drumheller Mail office. Out of town subscribers of
The Drumheller Mail will be able to pick up their newspaper at the village offices in Carbon, Delia, Hussar, Munson, Morrin, Big Valley, Rockyford and Standard. The paper will also be available at Akokiniskway Golf Course in Rosebud and the Rumsey Library in Rumsey on Tuesday and Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m.
