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?

Help dispel some rumours about unions or companies in the this sector.

Yup, that's exactly true - nice way of sticking up for their membership .. she's hooped now. Darren said today there will be ZERO amnesty for any of the 14 employees fired already, or the ones that are pending. So it's a done deal for WonderWoman, no going back now, no matter what Bruce tells her.

That is because the TWU is assuming that all the firing is just posturing on Telus' part and when the contaract is finally signed there will be a "forgive and forget" clause so anyone fired will be rehired again.

I expect they will try to balance teh rehiring by Telus with the TWU not botherint to fine members who crossed or some other nonsense.

Hope everyone is having a great evening.

Alec

Darren said today, and I quote "If Bruce Bell came up to me today and said we'll take your offer as is, no questions asked, if you provide amnesty for the 14 employees that have been fired, my answer, with the full support of the executive leadership team would be an unequivocal NO DEAL. We will not allow the workplaced to be poisoned by allowing individuals that have perpetrated unlawful acts against our team and our property to return to work under anty circumstances."

And thats exactly how it should be! They are tring to use the labour dispute as an excuse to get away with BS behaviour. Its time to start acting like adults and to stop hiding behind the TWU thinking they are going to get these peoples jobs back.
