Dysart et al is working on a contingency plan if the potential strike by Canada Post happens.

The municipality announced today if the strike does happen, there is a concern that it could last long enough to impact the municipal election. That’s because voting in Dysart is done through mail-in ballots.

The strike stems from issues in pay for the mail carriers. Urban postal workers get paid hourly, whereas rural postal workers get paid by the size of their route. If a deal is not reached the strike could start as early as Saturday the 29th.

So far the municipality hasn’t released any details of its plan in the event of a strike. The My Haliburton Now newsroom will keep you updated as those details become available.
