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!

People who cross are going to get fired

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

I was told it is up to a $1000 per incident!
Well it looks like whoever told you that was wrong, weren't they...

Oh yeah, I can see the newspaper headlines: Government Enforces $200,000 Fine for Individual TWU SCABS!

Uh no. If it was $1000 maybe, but $200,000 for crossing, they'd be laughed out of court so fast they'd trip over their own court documents. No one would get a mortgage to pay down a useless fine.

Also, in a meeting this morning with director's in our office, they ensured that everyone knew that there was no way the TWU could have Telus garnish our wages to pay either fines or back dues.


Have a great day everyone!

Meaning they won't be enforced. They may get mailed to you. They may go to kangaroo court and find you guilty. However, they won't get enforced by any real court in Canada. Some threat.


Have a great day everyone!

Scabs are a never ending source of amazement to me. It is my fondest wish that you find it difficult to procreate lest the gene pool with sane, caring and reasonable people be polluted. Give your heads a collective shake........

Hey, maybe you should picket Mother Nature. She doesn't care about things like seniority, job security, lice, and most other union complaints.

Truely pieces of work!!! Obviously intelligence is not a prerequisite for tap dancing across a picket line and buying into the "*". I suggest all subscriber's to the doctrine pull up stakes and head to India or the Phillipines.

So I assume you are under the impression as well that I should take my kids and leave my husband because he is management(redeployed) and I am BU

I suggest all subscriber's to the Union doctrine pull up stakes and head to the nearest employment centre.

Or, if you've behaved decently and respectably on the line, I'd recommend calling your manager.

TELUS is moving on and if you're not coming in to work, then you're going to be left behind. This really applies mostly for AB. Not sure how things are going to unfold in BC but I hope they have a chance to come to work.

As far as they're concerned, this dispute is over. The deal was fair & generous and there was no reason not to accept it, unless you're one of those who were fired and then sold out by the Union Execs. There was an agreed upon deal and BB and the rest of the Union's Execs should've tried to actually sell the deal in the Rat' meetings.
