Worker shortages are impacting the delivery of the Statesman Journal as we struggle to find enough delivery drivers to get newspapers to our subscribers in the Mid-Willamette Valley.
We continue to aggressively recruit for delivery contractors and have increased compensation and are offering sign-on bonuses.
We know it’s a frustrating situation for our subscribers, and we apologize if you have been impacted. We know you love reading the Statesman Journal each morning – and we love being part of that routine.
We want to be transparent about our challenges and for you to know that we’re doing everything we can to get the situation resolved.
Let us know when you’re missing your newspaper by calling (800) 452-2511. And please take advantage of access to the e-edition of the Statesman Journal, a digital replica of the newspaper, which can be found at StatesmanJournal.com/enewspaper
If you are looking for work or know someone who is, we’d love to hear from you. Delivery drivers must have reliable transportation; we’re glad to fill you in on the rest when you call (833) 723-0588. Any new delivery contractor who tells us they were referred to us by a subscriber will receive an additional $250 on their first check.
Thank you again for subscribing and supporting local journalism and know that we don’t take it for granted.
Cherrill Crosby is the executive editor of the Statesman Journal. You may reach her at email@example.com
