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!

Hertz Hurts - Cope's Scorched Earth Policy.

Postby NC » Thu Feb 25, 2010 9:01 am

Nasty full page ad in the Vancouver Sun today.

It's too big so I can't scan it or anything. Basically the Canadian Union of Professional Employees (COPE) Local 378 is trying to destroy Hetrz Car Rental at Vancouver International airport by directing all its customers to other rental agencies because Hertz is trying to cut down on overtime.

I blows my mind that they can claim Hertz is making it "hard to get by on part time" then in the very same page, sending Hertz customers to the competition - effectively destroying the jobs.

"Just go over to one of the other rental counters, show them your Hertz rate and see if they can beat it". I smell a decert app coming at Hertz, COPE knows it and now wants to kill the business because COPE is not going to get any dues from them.
