Township urging residents to hold onto their ballots in the event of postal strike
As a strike by postal workers remains a possibility, Brock Township is urging residents to hold onto their ballots or make a trip to the municipal office in Cannington.
In a post to social media Monday (Sept. 24), Township staff noted that ballots can be dropped off during regular office hours.
“Due to a potential Canada Post disruption, it is recommended that you do not return your ballot in the mail until confirmation has been provided that a postal disruption will not occur. Ballots can be dropped off in the Clerk’s Department at 1 Cameron Street East, Cannington, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.,” the post reads.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers also announced Monday that it would not file a 72-hour strike notice for the time being in an attempt to reach an agreement.
The municipal election is set for Monday, Oct. 22.
