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!

TWU loses - Courts will not uphold fines.

Here is a better place for this topic, so I will make a sincere effort to get everyone to come here and talk instead of under "General".

I cannot find an old TWU Constitution, I only have what is on the site here, the one from October 2006, and the changes to that, where they change the word "fine" and to "special assessment".

Does anyone out there have a copy of the TWU Constitution from 2005? if you do, just PM me or email me - nc@labourtalk.org

"special assesment" was the unions way of trying to trick the company in to collecting the fines for them (it failed as the company stated it would only collect assessments that were leveled against all members equally)

Now the union tried to rename them again by calling them "debts" or "damages" and the court has ruled that these are in fact fines, no matter what the union decides to call them.

The court then states that it has no jurisdiction to collect fines for a union.

The court goes further in stating that not only will they not collect the fines for the union, but that the union is breaking it's own constitution by taking this to court at all.

I have the "Constitutional Changes" document that outlines that change from "Fines" to "Special Assessments".
