Update on Possible Postal Service Disruption - August 30, 2016

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have once again agreed to extend mediation another 24 hours. Both parties will continue to negotiate with the assistance of the special mediator into Tuesday, August 30.

 

In the event of a postal service disruption, the Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island has a plan in place to ensure that workers receive their benefits in a timely manner.

 

In the event that postal service is not available, clients will be able to pick up their cheques at the WCB office in Charlottetown. However, clients are strongly encouraged to sign up for direct deposit, which would provide for a more direct and prompt delivery. If you are picking up your cheque at the WCB, please call ahead. Please visit the website often, or contact us for more information.

 

In a postal service disruption occurs, the WCB recommends that all correspondence, including reports of injury and illness, be faxed to 902-368-5696 or dropped off to our office at 14 Weymouth Street in Charlottetown. Employers can also sign up for online services to submit injury reports and payments electronically. Physiotherapists and Chiropractors can also sign up for direct deposit via Online Services.
