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!

Just heard that the VP from AB resigned this morning? What's up with that?

Probably got a good position with the Steel Workers Union. How much damage did he do to the TWU while he was there? Any opinions?
And George, well he just doesn't look healthy. Does he wonder if while he was President the whole TWU went down the tubes was in any way his and his followers fault?
Maybe they'll put Betty Carasco or Lee Riggs or (?) in charge. Won't that be rich!

It seems that there have been some serious accusations against John Carpenter (VP) that may have had a direct bearing on his resignation.
Betty Carasco has pulled out of the Presidential race. (Smart move). Now it's Perry Pasqueletto and Lee Riggs left. Bets are on Lee. That will pit one power hungry person against Darren Entwistle. Will be a lot of fun to watch.

Heard that Lee was elected Pres, Ivana is the new VP, Ron Palmer was elected BA in Edmonton, Betty Lockhurst didn't get re-elected, Colin and Tamara were both re-elected, then Colin ran for Lee's vacant position in the Interior and got that, didn't hear who was elected in the Lower Mainland to replace him.
