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!


Compare the differences with the different available unions. Which is the better choice?

The convention was a international affair, a gathering of al locals across the globe. The Alberta local like all IBEW locals was given a number of delegates equal to the number of members in relation to who membership of the IBEW. The Alberta local had a bit of an advantage here as it was one of the largest local's in the IBEW so it had quite delegates. The IBEW international convention are conducted in a professional manner and all delegates have an equal oppurtunity to be heard. One of the prime reason for the convention is also to provide training and networking across industry lines to increase the cohesiveness and effectiveness of the union. I don't think we in BC really appreciatted that we rejected the cadillac of unions 5 years ago and got stuck with an exploding pinto clown car.
