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!

Any details about how the evil corporate Westin is misleading the world?

I mean gosh... they must be the only ones misusing "Green" in their marketing - how unusual!

I will look at the Unite HERE Local 40's website and find out ome more of this tale.

Local 40's website has links to many parts of the drama.

[quote]Hotel workers at Vancouver’s swanky Westin Bayshore and their supporters are holding a rally Tuesday to protest what they claim is a bogus green initiative that’s costing housekeepers their jobs.

The rally, scheduled for 5 p.m. outside the Coal Harbour hotel, targets the Bayshore’s “Make a Green Choiceâ€

Thanks for that visual... but yes, I wonder if any of these folks have asked - What will it look like if the union "wins"?

I just despise when a buiness union like Unite HERE choses to kill the employer, and the employees buy in to the union line that it is for the best.

Ooopps... there's that damn reality again.
