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!

How embarrased they must be!

Remember the PROUD 66? They and the VCERT or Voices for Change (Dave DiMaria's web site) must be kicking themselves in their collective a**s. (All except Dave, who is now business agent pulling in the big bucks) We hear nothing on the shop floor. Only rumours and innuendo. They have now destroyed the twu and are laughing all the way to the bank! The lunatics are running the asylem. Can we say they are now totally in charge? Too many ego's. Just keep your heads down if you want to maintain a position in this union. Bullies run amok!!

who said that? did you say that? finian must be up in the mountains taking pictures and jc must be redecorating an office some where. We've had expensive visa bills too.
George must be begging for retirement. Maybe he already is. Does anyone know? Is Maria Zoni still the top Toast Master? Is everyone back from sick leave, vacation leave, overtime leave, etc,etc?? Who's minding the store?

I always thought "voices for change" was an odd name for a site that preached changing nothing and threatened anyone who went against the status-quo...

Funny, I recall being allowed to post on that site. Everytime I did I got heaps of noise and push back. Well, the union got what it wanted, unlimted control, free money and no one to fight back.

I recall that if you went against what they said, you got banned, not matter... cheaper for Telus than an HR dept.

Their lead horn blower was Finian... what was that fuckin' nutcase's real name, Dennis Watson. Gawd, I forgot all about that airbag. Shaping the world in his vision - I do not miss that warped twat.

He *knew* absolutely *knew* I was a woman, and had started this site paid for by telus. The world must be so dark when you refuse to pull your head out of your own a**. But I guess when your ego is that size you have to get in right close to appreciate it's beauty.

my two attemps to comment on VFC were completely flamed (and you know what a sweetheart I am). After that I only looged on when I wanted a giggle or when someone was saying a few choice things about this forum.
