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!

Wonder Woman Fired?

Postby BellaCoola » Fri Sep 09, 2005 11:53 am

I just heard from someone who works in TPS that wonderwoman (from VFC) has been fired. Anybody else here that? I've heard of a few vocal picketers being fired now.If you work/picket in edmonton she is the loud one on the mega phone.

I was just going to post her letter - you beat me to it.
Yes, she was fired. She was given an oportunity to defend herself, and she waived that right.

It's too bad, I keep seeing people like her get caught up in the action and going off the deep end. I don't think anybody should lose their job over this mess, it's just not worth it.

Yeah, if you ever saw her in action (the one with the megaphone) she was off the deep end... you can't help but think she just took it way too far - some people don't know where to draw the line, yet can be completely normal when not empassioned.

Apparently the TWU recommended that she not attend and defend herself.
