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!

What happened to the IOS website???

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

It is up to each individual to keep updated with both sides. Information is power. It is not realistic to sit about pouting about how the union didn't contact me bla bla bla.....don't sit around waiting, call them! You paid dues didn't you??? Do you really think that you would sit by and let the bank take an extra mortgage payment or your daycare double bill you??? We are all adults. The same can be said for telus. they can't be expected to give each of us all a phone call to make us all feel warm and fuzzy inside. Educate yourself and be responsible for the decision you come to because of your own information, not because Darren or Bruce say so. There is right and wrong on BOTH sides. I have not crossed, and I will not. That is my decision, because I have educated myself. I found IOS constantly validated my decision on a regular basis. cross if you feel its right, or dont cross, or come back if you already have. one way or another we are all going to have to work together eventually. your work should only be one aspect of your life, it should not consume you. This dispute has turned good hardworking adults into a bunch of kids, thanks darren, we all owe you one :shock:

You are correct, information is power. So when the union failed to keep their members informed, they lost their power over them. And as I've already mentioned on other posts, THE UNION IGNORED E-MAILS AND WOULD NOT RETURN PHONE CALLS in the weeks leading up to the strike, and continued afterwards. What's more, the Shop Stewards didn't have any answers.

Telus answered the questions, and now 55% of AB's bargaining unit has crossed.

Good enough, or do you want me to type slower? :wink:

Apparently scabs ony argue for the sake of arguing. I said cross or dont cross, i don't care. To insult me isn't helping the situation for the inside or the outside. We will all eventually have to work together, period. I guess IOS lives here too.....keeps validating my decision to stay out. I can't be bought with money and free ice cream.

In your previous post you said it was each member's obligation to educate themselves, and I have enlightened you to the fact that they did educate themselves, and by doing so they realized the union didn't care for them and didn't want their support, so they crossed. The union has shown a pattern of neglect, starting with their refusal to address it's members questions, and most recently by not bothering to send a spokesperson to the Rutherford Show and then whining about it afterwards.

Put the blame where it rightfully belongs...at the feet of the TWU executive council.

On VFC they were saying that the owner got fired from Telus for an unrelated reason. How they would know this I'm not too sure. But of course nothing was said about the site and why it was shut down. Does anybody know?
Just to Clarify. No, the owner did NOT get fired by TELUS, infact they are still proudly working for the company Day in, day out.

It was shut down because pro twu activists kept harassing the owner with lawsuits because "someone said something" blah blah blah
