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!

From the hotline...

Posted 2010-May-27
The Benevolent Society recently met for their Annual General Meeting which took place on May 19, 2010. The Society approved audited financial statements and voted on the following two resolutions:

Resolution from Local 2:

WHEREAS it is common practice for the TWU-STT Benevolent Society to allocate up to $1000 for retiring employees who are members in good standing; and

WHEREAS this amount has not been changed for more that 25 years; now
THERFORE BE IT RESOLVED that TWU-STT Benevolent Society Bylaw 11-2 be increased to $150 per year to a maximum of $3000.

Resolution from Directors of the Benevolent Society:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Directors of the Benevolent Society investigate all options and proceed with the rebuilding of 5261 Lane Street or the relocation of the TWU-STT Burnaby office to a new owned property subject to approval of the members of the Society at the AGM on May 19, 2010; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the TWU-STT Benevolent Society Board of Directors seek the advice and assistance of Concert Properties with our rebuilding or relocation.

The Directors recommended non-concurrence for the first resolution because of the heavy cost that it would incur to the Society. The Directors agreed to pass the second motion and will proceed with the investigation. All further updates will be shared with members as information becomes available.
