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!

When a Union card isn't a Union Card

Postby NC » Tue May 05, 2009 9:23 pm

Here's a new angle. In the USA they are likely going to impose "Card Check" certification. Canada still has it in some provinces, and Canada is the the last place on earth it is still legal, but the US is coming back to it because Barrack Obama needs to repay his union debt.

So the SEUI has come up with a union card that, if signed, will not let you quit membership:


This ought to be fun to watch unfold.

Well, you can always die and be reincarnated and come back as a rat that lives under George's desk. Then you wouldn't have to worry about quitting the union.
