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!

This is in today's National Post"
But you wouldn't know it by listening to union claims. The TWU (Telecommunications Workers Union) currently has actions against more than 200 Telus employees who exercised their right to work during a 2005 strike. Fortunately, the law firm Gowlings is acting for these employees.

Below is another excerpt from the article. It is really funny how the union, especially the TWU, stewards and B.A.'s always throw around the words, harrassment and intimidation when managers try to excersise their management rights, but when it comes to this it seems those words suddenly don't exist anymore........major double standard.....

But PSAC remains undaunted and vows to continue to levy fines. Executive vice-president Ed Cashman proudly claims, "We've got a good track record of members who are fined and actually pay voluntarily. We don't have to resort to the courts." But that "good track record" really only demonstrates that union threats are sufficient to frighten employees into paying -- even though the law is on their side.
