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!

AGM TELUS

Postby wimpole1 » Sat May 08, 2010 3:00 pm

It was "Unpresedented" the chair, Brian Canfield, said about the lack of questions for the Telus Exec. at the Annual General Meeting. UNPRESEDENTED because it was the first time in the memory of anyone that there was NO twu representation!! No one representing the twu was there to ask a question, What does that tell you about the twu. They are a bunch of cowards that couldn't even get one of them to ask one single question!! How Shameful!!
This bargaining facade that is going on is so much b.s. The company is going to offer a contract and do you think one of us is going to vote it down?? So why doesn't the twu just save us some money and get it over with. Come on, for once can't they do the honorable thing?

it was pretty disappointing. I am of another mind however. I would like to see the contract in place and ratified so we can just get on with our work.


TWwho?

For Sure. Let's cut to the chase this week! Get is over with. Sign the contract. Quit with the semantics. We all know it's a done deal. There is no union and what is left has no support.

Let's do an online petition, one of the free ones. It will mean nothing but it would be fun to have a petition "Who wants to decertify the TWU at Telus?"

Does anyone know how to set one of those up?

I asked a shop steward about bargaining, he told me it hasn't started yet, he said it would be illegal to start it yet!

gotta love the TWU...

According to Darren's speech at the TELUS shareholders AGM, bargaining will commence "earlier than originally planned" in July this year

Yes, well what you have is an organization that makes lots of money and spends its days figuring out how to spend it all. They are hardly going to end that sweet little operation they have going.


TWwho?
