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!

News from BC: "Unions Love Dix"

Postby NC » Wed May 01, 2013 10:09 am

Sorry for the hiatus, that damnable need to make money always impinges on the fun stuff, like posting to LabourTalk.

The BC Election is just around the corner and I am not hearing enough about the changes the NDP are going to make when they get in. They are, by my opinion just an extension of the BC Labour Movement, manifest as a political party.

The Province newspaper ran a story about the BC Federation of Labour’s plans for their future in BC. There was a document that outlined it for the reader – “What do we want to achieve together as a BC labour movement during 2012.” Sadly, the Province (BC’s equivalent to the Toronto Star) did not keep the document up there, or the story, that I can tell.

It was interesting and informative:
This document Was produced by 35 affiliate leaders and senior staff, meeting for a full day to address the question "What do we want to achieve together as a BC labour movement during 2012?” The participants worked In Open Space Technology, self-organizing a working agenda and self selecting the workshops. They treated this as an incubator for ideas and strategies, to be fed in as enrichment of the formal decision-making structures of the Federation. Notes were taken by Federation staff.
It looks like the BC fed got themselves a writer!! Anyway, you didn't think I would go through all of that and not actually be able to produce the thing did you? Here for your reading pleasure is the BC Federation of labour explaining what they want to achieve together as a BC labour movement. Summary of Open Discussion Ideas.
