Postal Service Disruption

Indications suggest that there will be a job action beginning July 2, 2016 by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers which will result in postal service disruption.

During this highly likely disruption of Canada Post services, many services and routine delivery processes of the Health Sciences Libraries will be unaffected while others will experience disruption during the suspension of Canada Post services:

  • Delivery of library materials between campuses and hospitals within Winnipeg will be unaffected
  • Delivery of library materials to Personal Care Homes (PCHs) within Winnipeg will be unaffected.
  • Delivery of library materials to health facilities outside of Winnipeg will be suspended for the duration of the Canada Post services disruption
  • Delivery of library materials to fee-for-service physicians in Manitoba (including Winnipeg) will be suspended for the duration of the Canada Post services disruption

If you are among those whose delivery of library materials will be disrupted during this time, but are in need of library materials urgently, please contact library staff who will do everything possible to solve urgent information needs using other methods of communication at mhiknet@umanitoba.ca or 204-789-3807 (or toll free at 1-877-789-3807).
