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 History Lesson for Canadian Union Members

Postby NC » Mon Jun 01, 2009 4:00 pm

I love this stuff...

I was sent this rather length piece about the history of the SEIU in Canada. It is very sad to hear what happens when a corrupt America mega-union runs a Canadian union. The American model is the true "Business Union" in the very worst way and if anyone wants to fight it be prepared for a Jihad, they will kill there own without remorse.

If you are in anyway related to the SEIU this piece is a MUST READ.

[quote="Andy Stern"]International President Andy Stern has stated that locals with less than 100,000 members lack the power to effectively deal with employers or government. Stern believes that the goal of building up mega-locals of that size is worth nearly any cost, including sacrificing democracy.

“Workers want their lives to be changed. They want strength and a voice, not some purist, intellectual, historical, mythical democracy. Workers can win when they are united, and leaders who stand in the way of change screaming "democracy" are failing to understand how workers exercise the limited power they have…â€

Now the SEIU is laying off its own staff...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 00709.html
The Service Employees International Union, considered the most influential union in the nation, has notified the union that represents about 220 of the SEIU's national field staff members and organizers that it is laying off 75 of the employees.

It is altogether possible that we have stumbled upon the most corrupt union yet to walk the face of the earth. Type in "SEIU reform" or SEIU corruption" into Google and read...



The Campaign to Reform SEIU Local 888
Members feel isolated and disconnected from their union.
They question why the only time they see union staff is during contract negotiations.
Unit stewards have experienced such a rapid turnover of staff and constant lack of response from Charleston to their requests for help in pursuing grievances and enforcing their contracts, that they've come to believe they are on their own.
It's crazy. They are obviously a very tech savvy group over at the head office of the SEIU because much of the time you can read only the cached content, or the link. Anything really potentially damaging has been "removed by user" or gives a 404 error. It must be costing the membership a fortune in dues.

If you're a TWU member, or anyone else in a union, you;ll feel better about your representation is you read some of these SEIU "Fast Facts"

I would like to see what some of our more tech savvy group can find in some of these dead links and missing Youtube videos.

This is a job for Farcical Finian, if ever there has been one.

Oh s**t yeah. The amount of money they will have at their disposal will make all but the most sturdy of monetary systems shudder. They have and will, without hesitation, bury an entire workforce or employer to meet their ends - power and money. All they can get at the expense of employers and employees without regard for personal liberty or rights.

The SEIU is a money making machine and once they have a workforce they will not let go. Decertifying these bastards would be neigh on impossible, they would scare employees so badly that none would raise a hand against them.

Employer intimidation??!?!, read some of what these socialist psychopaths have done to their own members and understand that we are looking at the Sith Empire of Business Unionism... these guys are corrupt and getting more so every day. They have Obama's balls in a vice and are twisting... I just hope the USA and Canada can neuter this animal before it eats any more of its young.

Andy Stern is the next Hoffa, with technology and raw egotism driving his sycophants forward. It shall be an interesting time, and I hope the people they encounter have the strength to stand up for their individual rights and demand democracy and rights, before this SEIU machine takes them in with lies and deceit. The weak and unsuspecting will fall first.

I hope LabourTalk has the opportunity to take a swing at this machine at some point... thus the rant.
