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!

What does it cost to fire a bad Tax Collector??

Postby NC » Sun Jun 24, 2012 9:55 am

I was doing research for some folks about the Collective Agreements in the public sector. There's a lot of noise about how much time they take off... forget the 22 pages of "Leave" provisions, if they are found "Incompetent" and fired they get up to 28 week pay:
Termination for Cause for Reasons of Incapacity or Incompetence

When an employee has completed more than one (1) year of continuous employment and ceases to be employed by reason of termination for cause for reasons of incapacity pursuant to paragraph 12(1)(e) of the Financial Administration Act, one (1) week’s pay for each complete year of continuous employment, to a maximum of twenty-eight (28) weeks.
Am I the only guy who thinks this is <expletive>!

Don't believe me, here's one of the CRA Collective Agreements:

To play devil's advocate, it is only if they've worked for 28 years and then found incompetent that they are eligible for such a payout. I should hope that 28 years of incompetence would be nipped in the bud long before they reach 28 years.

On the other hand... I have worked with some rather incompetent people who've been 5-10 years into their employment. Common sense is just too much to expect, I guess.

Have a great day everyone!
