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!

Don't think that Telus is going to outsource YOUR jobs? How stupid can you be?

"There is an outsourcing company called NuComm International, www.nucomm.net. From their home page, under "Contact Centre Services" they have a bullet that says: Manila - 100% of the Service for 50% of the Cost. They are currently hiring in the Philippines as well as at several Ontario locations.



NuComm International also has a toll free "Recruiting Line" at 1-866-442-8932. When you call that number, Option 4 in the IVR is "To learn more about the TELUS Service Representative Position."



When you press 4, the recording says that you would be responsible for working with customers in a number of areas possibly including troubleshooting technical problems customers are experiencing, educating customers about new products and services, responding to billing inquiries, answering packaged detail requests etc. and then it goes on to a point where you can make your application with them. It sounds like they are outsourcing the jobs that our CSR's do today."

Hmmmm could it be that they are hiring new people because TELUS is expanding and needs people to staff those positions and this company does hireing for Manila. TELUS invests in a company, to grow their business so they hire more people to handle customer service. Sounds pretty straight forward

It takes a huge jump in logic to get from there to transfering my job to the phillipines.

It's not a jump of logic, it's a jump of illogical and irrational fear.

The only ones looking silly are the ones who walked away from their jobs...that would be the picketers. Now some of them will be coming back to occupy a resource pool rather than their old jobs.
