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!

I am told that the boys were about to send the above letter when they got this from the Board – a date on Nov 8 for the LRO meeting – progress.

They are getting some help however, no one but me can post stuff so I keep getting these documents to post. I am out of town so have not had the time to get into the email loop to keep up.

Letter from Employees to OLRB October 27, 2010

I cannot comment on what these are for though it would appear the union declined to participate in mediation so... onward?

This is such a great thing to watch. I think we are getting this stuff as a courtesy for helping, I have no idea.

I really gotta get a Pay Pal account.

So, I thought I would ask... have we heard from the CIRB? Did these fellows get their requested documents and has anything been set for the future?

I asked the question a month ago and my answer came today. The Labour Board has done nothing.

The guys have to send this to the Ontario Labour Board.

Employee letter to the OLRB - Dec 9, 2010

Even if you only read back a short way you can see that these poor guys are getting stuffed from both sides. This sucks.
