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!

Union folks will like this!

As an aside... the CIRB allows and in fact regulates decertification but unions will still throw you out for trying.

As well, the CIRB does not ban picket line crossing, but they do ban discriminatory treatment of members, like fines for crossing a picket line.

Oh, I forgot, the CIRB does not punish unions do they? The fact that the CIRB are themselves unionized makes their neutrality a mite suspect though too eh?

Why is fining someone for crossing a picket line discriminatory? After all, pretty much every union's Constitution includes language that describes what measures can be taken against a member if that carded member opts to not respect (obey?) that union's Constitution.

Put it this way, Alberta has some set rules with respect to what you can and can not do while driving and if you get fined for breaking one of those rules (let's say speeding in a school ground zone), are you being discriminated against by being assessed a penalty (a fine and demerit points) for viloating one of those set rules?

And your point is?
His Point is that you are pulling up old posts, that have already been beaten like a dead horse if you search futher you will find the answer to your question, and a picture of an old horse being beaten to death... I think ash posted that. So before you start asking questions that have already been discussed such it....

Thats is point.

Didn't see the comparison beat to death in this thread - show me where the relative argument is and I'll respond there.

Ahh, the wonderous powers of JohnDoe...




*LOCKED*




PS, don't bring up old posts that have been beaten to death 5 or 6 times, if you wish to read the old posts, read away, but quit bumping dead threads (feel the rhyme).


Have a great day everyone!
