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!

The conversation about fines has sort of grown over here:

viewtopic.php?p=29801#29801

If you want to start a conversation, and I hear the Telus Towers are buzzing, do it here, in the FINES section.

We would love to hear what Telus employees think.

The VFCert folks will not likely made them selves heard but... I am sure they are talking about it in their private board.

I think I like, this line the best:
I also find that the imposition of a fine and penalty equal to the gross income earned by any employee is unconscionable in the circumstances, making the penalty unenforceable even if equitable principles were applied.
And the TWU of the time was dolling out $1,000 per "offense". We heard numbers like $10,000. This was for $1,100 and $1,400 if I recall - :lol: It is tough not to use expletives (but John makes sure we don't - spoil sport)

What sweet, sweet justice. I wonder how much of your dues was spent trying to screw the members?

There are, not too suprisingly, no comments about the freedom recently won here for employee everywhere, on any of the TWU "blow my horn" site. Dennis Watson, the people's advocate for all things wonderful seems to have missed it somehow?

I thought for sure one of the VFCert gaggle would screw up the courage to face us about what a travesty it is... oh well... safer in their cave than out here in the open.
