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!

USA Data - Union Density

Postby NC » Fri May 25, 2007 10:54 am

A US Website that studies and reports... read it yourself
In 1980, the Foundation began publication of Government Union Review, a quarterly journal dedicated to providing a forum for scholarly research on the impact of unionism on government and union influence on public policy. The Review also provides a forum for those who are interested in developing alternatives to unionism in the public sector.

...and this is the rest of the unionization data for the rest of the country.
The Union Membership and Coverage Database, available at [see blink below - NC*] is an Internet data resource providing private and public sector labor union membership, coverage, and density estimates compiled from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly household survey, using BLS methods. Economy-wide estimates are provided beginning in 1973; estimates by state, detailed industry, and detailed occupation begin in 1983; and estimates by metropolitan area begin in 1986. The Database, constructed by Barry Hirsch (Trinity University) and David Macpherson (Florida State University), is updated annually.

I can't put anything up? I have the canadian numbers but no idea how to get them to the site. I emailed them on the weekend but they are not here yet.

They are the canadian density for both public and private sector. they should be pretty easy to chart.
