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!

In Memoriam – Neil Morrison
Hotline
Posted 2009-Dec-16
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Neil Morrison on December 11, 2009. Neil was a proud member of the Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU) where he worked for over 30 years,

first as an officer and then as Vice-President for the last 11 years before retiring in 2003. We are deeply grateful for his many years of active and dedicated service.

Neil was very well respected within the Labour community as with arbitrators and employers alike. He had an infectious personality and a unique ability to connect with people. Outside of work, Neil was an avid hockey fan. Having played in his youth, his love of the sport was well known to many. Neil also enjoyed fishing and working on the dairy farm. A funny quote from the Transmitter which announced Neil’s retirement in 2003 said that the fish off of B.C.’s West Coast received the news of Neil’s retirement with “panic and dread.â€

Neil was a bulldog, once he set his teeth into a case he
didn't let go. His style was to wear down the employer,
attrition vs finesse. At least he had a few years to
enjoy his retirement.
