The looming Canada Post strike has caused widespread confusion and uncertainty to all users of the postal system.
The AdMill's strike contingency plan to cope with the possible service disruption has worked exceptionally well… however it is no replacement for direct Canada Post delivery.
In light of CUPW and Canada Post's continued negotiations, AdMill has decided to resume regular weekly delivery of the AdMill bag through Canada Post starting the week of August 01, 2016.
The AdMill Bag Canada Post Delivery Contingency Plan is outlined below.
When the AdMill Group resumes regular weekly production, shipping and CPC delivery of the AdMill Bag:
- a. Should either side announce a 72 hour notice to strike before the Monday ship date to Canada Post, then AdMill will revert to its Apartment Drop Delivery Contingency Plan.
- b. Should either side announce a 72 hour notice to strike on the Monday ship date, after the AdMill Bag has been inducted into Canada Post, then AdMill will cease all further drops and revert the balance of AdMill Bags not inducted to its Apartment Drop Delivery Contingency Plan. This worst case scenario, resulting in a Canada Post strike beginning the upcoming Friday, may result in approximately 20% of inducted AdMill Bags not being delivered.
- c. Should either side announce a 72 hour notice to strike on the Tuesday of the delivery week, the AdMill would continue to induct all mail into Canada Post, since the earliest possible strike date would be Monday of the following week, allowing enough time for ALL AdMill Bags to be delivered.
The AdMill Group will not be held financially responsible for any AdMill Bag that is not delivered on time due to a Canada Post Service Disruption. All AdMill Group clients agree to hold the AdMill Group harmless and assume all risks and costs associated with late delivery of the AdMill Bag due to a Canada Post service disruption.
We thank our clients for their continued support during these uncertain times regarding the looming postal disruption and assure everyone that the AdMill Group is well prepared to offer and execute the best option available in the marketplace.
