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!

Wildcat strike and LabourTalk is silent?

Postby wonderer » Wed Feb 27, 2008 12:14 pm

A wildcat CUPW strike in Fort McMurray and all the regular union bashers on LabourTalk remain silent?

What gives?

It's so not like NC or grudey or lonetag or green1 or want2know or admin1 or Ash or Stuartgg not to take a kick at what appears to be such an easy target.

Very strange indeed.

Didn't know about it, Still don't. What's your point. That is CUPW, I don't know what's going on, I'm a little more concerned about the TWU. :shock:

C'mon NC, you're better than that.

It's not too late and it took less than a minute to find relevant news stories still on the web.

NC, you can do better.

So Wonderer.. what the hell was that all about??!?

You just step into the forum, poke me in the eye, then whinge when you get poked back? Be an adult ya' puss.

If you wanna have a go at me for being involved in Canadian Labour issues you better be well prepared to make a point or get slapped for being a prat.

I have *no* idea what wildcat strike you are talking about, but I am interested. If you just want a fight, screw off and go hammer on someone else.

If someone stops working in fort macmurray they had better step to one side or they will get run down. they are definately the minority.

Up there everyone is too busy working and making money to notice the goverment union whiners....

Glad to see all is still... as in not moving, or you ran out of thought?

Alec, glad to see you again too. What brings you out on such a chilly day?
