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!

My Dues. My Views.

Postby NC » Fri Nov 21, 2008 11:14 am

To practice many professions like teaching, nursing etc, individuals must join a union and must pay union dues. These dues are for collective bargaining purposes, but union leaders are using that money to support causes unrelated to determining wages and benefits in the workplace, causes many union members may not even know about and many they do not support.

Two union members don’t think this is right, so they asked the B.C. Supreme Court to hear their voices in a case brought by their unions challenging the limits on election advertising.
This is, as many know a cause close to my heart. The use of member dues for political purposes. it should not be allowed, dues should be paid by choice, and any spending of them for political purposes should be forbidden.

Go, read, support them. This is a very big fight starting in BC. I am working today so don't have a lot more time left to post this AM. I will address this a lot more. These two ladies need help and I plan to blow th ehorn as loud as i can.
