Hey everyone. I got some time to do the latest update to the board software, but it meant that all the old modifications and styles wouldn't work anymore. So, here you have the newest iteration of LabourTalk. Please let me know by Private Message if you run into any issues with the new styling. Some new features on the board are:

  • Latest HTML5 Responsive Styling - You can now see a new, more modern styling on the board. Along with this, you can resize the browser to see the board change with it. The board is now functional on all sizes of screens, including your cell phone, table and desktop/laptop.
  • Post Sharing - Although you could previously, the new layout means the sharing icons are more visible on the lower right hand corner of each post. Click your favourite social media outlet to share the desired post with them.
  • Multiple Themes - Previously there was only one theme in an attempt to lower the workload when modifications were put in place. Fortunately, the new modification system is much simpler to implement and we now have multiple colour options for you to enjoy. You can change these from your User Control Panel under the Board Settings heading.
  • Announcements - Announcements can now be posted here (where you're seeing this one) and, in most cases, can be dismissed. To dismiss them, please click the "X" in the top right corner of this box.
  • Collapsing Categories - Categories, such as News & Announcements or Welcome (below), can be collapsed to clear up some of the clutter. This state should be maintained as long as you're logged in.

We hope you like the changes!

Still think they won't contract out?

Postby Unionrep » Sat Sep 03, 2005 11:21 am

They have already begun

NuComm International has a toll free "Recruiting Line" at
1-866-442-8932. When you call that number, Option 4 in the IVR is "To
learn more about the TELUS Service Representative Position."

It took about two days of this and the wording was changed to
"To learn more about the TELEPHONE Service Representative Position."

but of course you say how do I know it said TELUS?

It is very evident at TELUS that there are thousands of BU positions that cannot go overseas... there is not possible way my position could be done from a remote location... if you are worried about your job...then step up and get yourself trained to move into another position... there are hundreds of ways to move around in this company, show some detication and a GREAT attitude and you will go where ever you want to go...

this labour dispute cannot stop what is happenign in our corporate world...

I tried copy/paste into a brower and get a message "Sorry, this site is temporarily unavailable!" Is there another way to get this alleged recording?

The very day that 800# showed up on v4c I called it and didn't hear anything about "TELUS" and I called it twice. Unless whoever posted it on v4c waited several days to post the number.

'Teleservices' position is a common way to refer to a call center position in any company. Not Telus Service representative. OMG.
Nucomm provides services for hundreds of companies. Why did they not give options for press 2 for Dell Service representative, press 3 for Microsoft Service representative, press 4 for Air Canada Service representative, press 5 for Bell Canada Service representative....................

Why would Telus pay Nucomm when they have their own facility. Nice try though. I bet the union office is clinging to this one for their lives.
Do you hear any other voices?

Paranoia is a very dangerous thing left unchecked.

These are leading employee placement companies offering placement of jobs IN Telus. Do you homework before you post this stuff.
What is your point in trying to continue to stir up crp like this.

It seems to me that it is more important to note that Telus is growing employment and is using various means to attract new people.
What about that is a problem?

how can they grow employment( bad sentence) when they have employees on the line. I am under the impression it is illegal in ab and BC, to hire replacement workers when there is job action going on.but this is not yet a federal law.

In BC you cannot hire replacement workers....in AB (Ralph's Kingdumb) you can.

Unfortunately the federal labour code applies to TELUS, it still allows replacement workers. The feds recently voted down a bill that would have banned replacement workers. They showed their caring and concern for the average worker.
