The Mail pre­pared in event of postal dis­rup­tion

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

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. On Mon­day, Septem­ber 24, the union said it would not is­sue a 72-hour strike no­tice as both sides are still at the ta­ble ne­go­ti­at­ing.

The Drumheller Mail has made al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments to con­tinue to bring news to read­ers if in­deed there is a dis­rup­tion.

“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, 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.
