Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) may be the reason as to why some of the Commentator’s subscribers did not receive their Nov. 6 paper in their mailboxes on time last week.After back and forth emails between Commentator staff and Medicine Hat Post Office
between Nov. 6 and 7 to assure the papers would get out on time , the Commentator publisher Ryan McAdams had been informed on Tuesday morning that the papers were refused and relayed the message to administration.
However, the Medicine Hat Post Office claimed they were unaware of any refusals of papers and were looking for them.
Additionally the papers were then returned to the Medicine Hat printing facility and were re-delivered back to Canada Post early Wednesday morning.
The Commentator administration clerk responded on Wednesday morning to Medicine Hat Post Office to see if the papers were received and going to be delivered.
Gina Ziegler of Medicine Hat Post Office responded by saying on Wednesday afternoon that “Yes the Commentator paper was received here in Medicine Hat Post Office today. However it was not delivered today, and possibly not even tomorrow … they have to be manually sorted first, into respective routes, before they can be delivered.
“Some of the papers will make it out tomorrow. But the main bulk will probably not be out for delivery until Friday, due to the volume of mail that is to be sorted before it can be delivered.”
The Commentator will do everything within our ability to ensure on time delivery for our subscribers.
