INGERSOLL/ZORRA TOWNSHIP - The Town of Ingersoll and Zorra Township are working on contingency plans in case of a Canada Post Strike.
Canada Post employees have voted to go on strike on September 26th, if a new deal is not reached by then.
Ingersoll and Zorra are currently planning to send vote by mail ballots starting on September 24th.
The Clerks of Ingersoll and Zorra have developed three contingency plans. Ingersoll Clerk Michael Graves says they are ready for a potential strike.
“Clerk’s always use triple redundancy for elections.”
Zorra Clerk, Karen Martin echoed those remarks.
"The contingency plans are prioritized, and we are working on components of all three in order of prioritization.”
Both Clerks stated that there will likely be further press releases advising of changes to the election process and ask the public to be on the lookout for modifications to the election process – should the strike proceed.
