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!

It's nice to see another final offer from the city.

I didn't see the proposed changes to the pension plan in the posted documents. This must be a Hot Button as even the Police and Fire Fighters are joining with Transit workers on this one.

Public opinion seems to be with the union on this one... but I don't understand why... talk to a shuttle driver about this mess some time... their own union is trying to strike to stop them from making more money, and to stop the city from expanding their numbers...

The public sees the money side of the deal, however the union admits that this is not about money (which is obvious as they are only 1% apart) the union's big problem is that those who make the least in the union (shuttle drivers) are being given the largest raises, and that the new shuttle buses are bigger than the old ones (by less than 2 feet) making the "big bus" drivers worry their routes will be taken over by the shuttle drivers (which is unlikely)...

Transit Strike Averted

The City and ATU Local 583 have reached
a tentative Memorandum of Agreement.

The union has cancelled its planned 24 hour strike, that was scheduled to
begin Friday June 1 at 12:30 p.m. and instead has called a meeting of its
members to conduct a ratification vote. The union executive has indicated
that it will recommend acceptance of the agreement to its members
