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!

Court backs fines for not picketing
A first for Ontario: Four members ordered to pay union thousands of dollars

Published: Friday, February 24, 2006
OTTAWA - The Public Service Alliance of Canada is making good on threats to fine members who refused to walk the picket line during the massive 2004 federal strike, marking the first time a union in Ontario has levied such fines.

So far, four members have been ordered by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice Small Claims Court to pay the union thousands of dollars in fines.

And the union says this is only the beginning of the legal action -- as many as 196 more Ontario members will be hauled before the courts in the coming months.

"This shows we can fine people who choose not to respect the picket line," said Chris Aylward, PSAC's regional vice-president with the Union of Taxation Employees. "The judge ruled that the fines are collectable."


Have a great day everyone!
