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 jurisdiction are you in?

Jurisdiction is the most confusing part about how to decertify union in Canada. The United States and every other country has the good sense of only having one or two labour boards. In Canada we have 11 different labour boards, and some of them have multiple… let's call them subsets. The different jurisdictions you can choose from are: As you can tell each province has its own jurisdiction but there is an 11th jurisdiction called "Federal and Territories".
In most cases you will select the province where you work.

The Canadian Industrial Relations Board describes their jurisdiction as:
The Board's jurisdiction under the Canada Labour Code is limited to private sector works, undertakings and businesses that come within the legislative authority of the Parliament of Canada. These include:
  • Broadcasting and telecommunications
    Chartered banks
    Postal services
    Airports or air transportation
    Interprovincial or international transportation of goods or passengers by road, railway or ferry
    Grain handling and uranium mining and processing
    Some First Nations undertakings
    Federal crown corporations
    Private sector employees in Nunavut, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories
In addition to broadcasters and Crown Corporations, the Status of the Artist Act applies to federal government departments and agencies.

The Labour Program of Employment and Social Development Canada also plays a role in the administration of the Canada Labour Code Part II (Occupational Health and Safety) and Part III (Labour Standards).

If you are a federal public servant, you are subject to the Public Service Labour Relations Act, administered by the Public Service Labour Relations Board.
So, in otherwords, your "jurisdiction" is probably the Province you work in.

I started this process and just don't have the time to do it all here. We have started working with another website called Take Back Your Union and you can go there and get all of this info.
