Picketing impacts mail delivery in parts of N.B.

If you did not get any mail over the past couple of days, it is likely due to the strike by federal public service workers.

Canada Post employees are not part of the strike, but there has been secondary picketing activity at some of its facilities.

Janick Cormier, a spokesperson for Canada Post, said picketing at its Rothesay Avenue processing facility in Saint John on Wednesday and Thursday interrupted mail operations.

Cormier said that resulted in no mail processing or delivery in the Saint John region over the past two days.

“The retail post office at this location is also closed,” Cormier said in an email late Thursday afternoon.

Picketing activity also impacted the company’s operations at its Malenfant Avenue facility in Dieppe on Wednesday and Thursday.

Cormier said customers in Greater Moncton can expect “minor delays” in mail delivery.

With many people expecting to receive Canada Pension Plan or Old Age Security cheques in the mail this week, Canada Post did not address questions about any contingency plans it has in place.

Customers with questions about their postal services can contact Canada Post online or by calling 1-866-607-6301.
