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!

YOU MUST VOTE (Good Read) Copy it and pass around

Postby Admin1 » Mon Oct 17, 2005 10:26 pm

Anyone who has crossed, who for any reason is possibly choosing to avoid voting needs to read this.

You MUST VOTE!.. this is not about voting Yes or No, but about why most of us chose to cross in the first place. I personally do not think it is coincidence that the majority of these vote sessions have been scheduled for work time. They know they cannot stop us from voting but they can make it difficult. We have options.
Most crossed because we felt misrepresented and that our democratic right to have a say in our future was taken from us, by not allowing us to vote on the Telus offer when it was shown to us in April. Merely doing that at the time they would , I am sure, had a lot more support (if it had gone No ) than they do now. Do not let them take that right from you again.
If you are somehow concerned about your personal well being, then go in groups. all they can do is scream at you, and speaking for myself they haven�t been very creative in coming up with new stuff lately so I�m sure I can handle hearing the same old stuff again. Don�t let the hecklers win by letting them deny you of your right to have a say in this process. I for one am going to take GREAT satisfaction in walking in there to let them see I will be casting my vote
You also have an absentee ballot option as outlined in the TWU constitution if you really and truly cannot bring yourself to go.. it states..

� An absentee ballot may be issued by the Secretary-Treasurer of the Union upon the written request of the individual member prior to the specified meeting and shall be for the sole purpose of voting on matters under the jurisdiction of the Convention or the Executive Council. An absentee shall be considered as a member who is working, sick, on vacation or located in an area making it impossible to attend the meeting where the vote is to be conducted"

Remember.. they took away democracy and tried to impose their will.. we fought that and democracy of us voting with our feet has played a large part in this opportunity being presented. The BC and EC had to listen to us and in the end have discovered that the offer truly did have merits in today�s marketplace.

Even if there is a No vote, we will still have created this opportunity , do not give it away..

Once again

it is official scabs can vote, the president of our union said so today on the sidewalk and everyone asked him the problem is if the silent majority does not go out to vote and the contract does not pass you will be facing tribunals and fines, so all of clerical get out and vote yes or you are doomed.
REMEMBER HOW THEY ARRVED AT THE STRIKE VOTE it happened because the rest of us didn't show up to vote!!
