WINNIPEG — The Workers Compensation Board is resuming its use of Canada Post for all mail delivery as the threat of a postal disruption dissipates.
The WCB says mail service will resume for all injured workers’ wage loss, pension, and medical aid cheques and healthcare providers goods and services cheques.
The WCB implemented a contingency plan in June by discontinuing the use of Canada Post and providing a cheque pick-up service.
“At this point, Canada Post and the union representing its employees have indicated that there must be at least a 72 hour notice before a work stoppage or lockout can be implemented,” a news release said. “With this news, the WCB is confident that the needs of injured workers and healthcare providers are better served by utilizing Canada Post to deliver essential mail.”
Should the threat of a mail disruption arise again, the WBC will re-institute its contingency plan for mail service.
