Due to the strikes being rotating, the crowns don’t expect much, if any, disruption.

“We do recommend for customers that don’t receive their bill, they are still responsible to pay their bill to avoid late payment charges. If they just paid the recurring amount that they typically owe from last month, or pay last month’s bill balance then it would avoid any late payment charges,” said SaskTel External Communications Director Michelle Englot.
