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!

dues/strike pay calculators

Postby green1 » Sun Aug 31, 2008 10:57 am

great work! one thing to note though, many people (myself included) find it difficult to find their monthly gross earnings, being paid bi-weekly makes it an awkward calculation, how about an option to enter hourly wage and hours/week worked?
(ie, most TELUS people work a 37.5 hour week, and if they enter their hourly wage, it can calculate the rest)

beyond that, the numbers it pulls up seem about right for the TWU.

Also, on the strike pay calculator, there are a couple points:
first, it asks hourly wage, but not hours/week (does it assume 40? which isn't always the case?)
secondly, in it's calculation of lost income does it take in to account taxes? strike pay is tax free whereas regular earnings are taxed, this can make a big difference.
