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!

SEIU calls Ontario wide health care strike

Postby NC » Tue Nov 05, 2013 12:38 pm

There's a new forum down below. One of our "contributors" has asked for thie new Health Care area (see further down in the main index), saying that some folks needed the space to meet and talk about what they are facing. As the saying goes "If I only had a dollar for every time someon has sent us an email like that, I would be rich."

As it turns out, these folks are Home Health Care Workers and they travel all over the place going to people's "homes", thus the name. I don't have a lot of details and am really hoping a few of them turn up on the site to discuss this.

Here's the SEIU Press Release that was posted in this new Health Care section. I tweeted it too, so if you want to get thise you can follow us at @labourtalk.

A PSW from Hamillton has just started posting about being swept into the union. I guess 250 employees were working union-free for their employer who also had a unionized group. The union went crying to the Ontario Labour board and got all of their jobs unionized. Again, just head down the Board Index and you can read about it.

Canada is the only place I have heard of where it is possible for you to be put into a union without a vote or hell, without even having a say in it.
