New cuts to Canada Post could cost the Georgetown, P.E.I., its post office on Saturdays.
The town’s council received a letter from the union representing Canada Post workers warning about possible cuts. It also said Canada Post isn't filling one of three positions at the post office after one of the employees retires.
Mayor Louis Lavandier said a recent review showed the volume of mail going through Georgetown is decreasing.
"Anytime there's reduction in service or employees are not being replaced the municipalities start to get concerned. We have been approached by the union for the postal workers to insist that the federal government halt this process in changing their times because it could result in further erosion of our postal service," he said.
The post office in Georgetown is open on Saturdays from 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Right now, mail sent within the Island is sorted in Charlottetown, but in April, Canada Post will move mail sorting to a facility in Halifax.
Canada Post said the change shouldn't change their two-day service standard. It said no jobs will be cut on P.E.I. Employees will be reassigned to other duties.
