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!

nothing other than what you guys are telling us here. I dont know how they would prove any of that. Unless they have a disgruntled employee that would sign something.

NO employee has been offered anything to come back to work. If they had, dozens of union members would have recorded those conversations and sent them off to the media, as such offers would be highly illegal.

Nobody was promised an mp3 player if they came back to work, lots of people got them (nobody in BC as far as I know) but the gift was not conditional on them coming back to work... besides, a $39 mp3 player is HARDLY an incentive.

The players were only given long after most people went back to work anyway- it wasn't a case of "show up and we'll give you this."

wow... I appear to work in the wrong department.... massages? meals? ipods? all I got was a disposible camera to take pictures of picketers with.... well, that and a pay increase, an increase in job security, the addition of personal days off, double time for any overtime I choose to work, the respect of my friends and co-workers and the gratitude of our customers... come to think of it... I think I've been quite well rewarded for returning to work....

Seriously, everything that Telus gave the blockade runners was done after they had crossed, and was not dangled as bait. The TWU can claim it all they want, but it is a bald faced lie.

Union supporters drop off food, beverages, and other assorted items for in support of the picket lines. That is no different than Telus showing it's support for the blockade runners with free stuff.

Frankly

Before any strike (er lockout) action started people had been given tons of Telus stuff: jacktes t shirts, travel mugs etc. etc.
