Potential Canada Post Labour Disruption

As you may have heard in the news, Canada Post may be in a position to strike in as early as July 2, 2016 due to contract negotiations.  As a result, there are several ways that this may impact you, our member.

The Credit Union relies on Canada Post for a number of services that we provide to our members.  Monthly Statements will be affected, and any cheques mailed in for deposit will not be able to be deposited until after the labour disruption.

Your Account may be affected by the following:

  • We will be unable to mail or receive back required forms for the account.  Forms such as TFSA, RRSP, Loan Applications, T2033, etc. will be affected
  •  Requested Draft Cheques will be unable to be mailed home
  • New Credit Card applications or replacement cards will be affected & there will be a delay until the labour disruption has ceased.
  • All Credit Card, Home Equity Line of Credit (Merit-lines), Loans, Lines of Credit & Mortgage clients will still be responsible for ensuring all payments are received on or prior to the required due dates.  Payments can be made through several methods, please visit our website:  http://theenergycu.com/access-my-money.html
  • Members will receive delays in receiving their Client Cards for debit purchases & ABM transactions.
