    ICT SUPPORTERS TRUST : AGM ADJOURNED

    for those making a distinction between "old board" and new board, just remember that we did not replace the board en-masse ... it was more of a rolling change over a number of years and some of the new board could also be considered as being part of the old board ! its not as simple as its being made out to be. Did the 'old' board make mistakes ? yes, they did. Has the new board? yes to that also. In fact, every board has likely made a ton of mistakes (considering we almost went to the wall twice). The one thing they all have in common I think is that they all thought they were doing what was best for ICT at the time. The board led by KC was trying to keep us in the premiership and was operating on a higher level in terms of revenues and costs and it appears that some silly contracts (for us) may have been handed out, but those contracts might have been sustainable in the premiership if we had remained ! The board led by GR is a board in the championship and although off to a rocky start - in my opinion - have started to pull some things round. They have come in for flak from several corners, including me, but more recently there have been a few things where they have been worthy of praise. The main aim is to cut our cloth to suit our pocketbook and we have done that before. Its maybe harder this time since we are used to premiership players and performances. If the aim is to steady the ship and build from there to get us back to the premiership then I am 100% behind them. If it is to be happy with our lot as a championship side then I am not.

    ICT SUPPORTERS TRUST : AGM ADJOURNED

    Things are becoming way too personal here (not just this thread but CTO in general), and because of this some very good and valued posters have already left and others continue to walk away. I do not expect everyone to agree about things but I do expect a degree of civility even in disagreement. The personal stuff has to stop, and it has to stop NOW. As we have said before, debate the post not the poster. With the current medical shenanigans going on in my personal life and major surgery just 12 days away I simply do not have time to be subtle or understanding about this and that leaves me with a choice. Ask for people to dial it back of their own accord and be civil about things or shutter the whole damn place permanently. Not going to babysit or mollycoddle grown adults - thats the potential paths, which one is taken will be decided by the actions of those who seek to make everything personal.

    Had a quick scan of the public records for Birmingham Crown and Magistrate courts and could not see is name on the list for yesterday. published records may not be complete or perhaps the papers got the date wrong.

    Canada Post

    I don't think the issue or argument is about control, its more about being asked to do much more for the same or less money and reduced benefits. Its a situation many find themselves in, especially in the public sector. The wage increases are minimal, definitely less than inflation, the employer keeps chipping away at the benefits package, removing or adjusting limits and levels, and yet on the other end the workload increases as the employer looks to "right-size" the organisation. (oh how I detest that particular phrase!). Canada Post was on its knees just a few years ago as no-one was sending letters any more, confidence in online shopping was at a low point, and its parcel service was largely irrelevant as it did not compete well with Fedex, Purolator, and UPS. They seem to have recovered well thanks in part to Amazon and the explosion in online ordering, even if they are not delivering many of the Amazon packages ... apparently the letter delivery service has also grown exponentially more recently as the preferred way to get legal marijuana is in the post !! I am lucky, I have a good employer who pays well and treats its staff well. My benefits package is comprehensive and even now as I prepare to go on short term disability for my surgery and post operative recovery, my HR department has reached out to me to explain the process, to note that i will be on 100% wages for up to 17 weeks and to tell me not to worry about anything, just to get better. Contrast that with the public sector where every action, every sick day, every injury, or every health claim is viewed with suspicion, and each time the employers and unions come to the table to discuss the CBA for the next few years they are miles apart, usually on agreed increments and benefits. I do sympathise with the employers a bit, as there are always a few who will find a way to game the system and get what they are not entitled to ... but the vast majority are hard working folk who need those benefits to be there when they most need them ! We send/receive from the UK in anything from 3-5 days usually (not including Christmas time). Letter post is not too bad but parcel post is ridiculous cost. We stopped sending anything too heavy to UK as the last time we went to do it, which was for a book of photos of Toronto as it happens, the postage cost was going to be well over $100 .... ended up sending it surface mail for about $26 but it took 6 weeks ! Postage from UK to Canada doesnt seem quite so harsh, but fair play to you Laurence for doing free post !

    ICT Xmas Dinner

    Although this is not (yet) posted on the official site I am posting it here as the source is pretty legit (Nicola McAlley). Assuming this is indeed legit then a huge pat on the back to the club for doing this. This is a tremendous idea and one they should be praised highly for. GOOD JOB !!!

    Canada Post

    Its mainly Health and Safety issues around the increased workload of parcel deliveries due to online shopping. One of my pals works for Canada Post and sent me this link : https://rankandfile.ca/what-postal-workers-are-fighting-for/?fbclid=IwAR24BQAjcZ2VTHuGECD4aGHRrAorufltcQqWqMJdtqiQh5tjq3sAC_P3fG8

    Canada Post

    Its rotating strikes so not an all out strike. Mail is delayed but not stopped and will be delayed no matter what even if the strike ends tomorrow. If anyone is sending to a Canadian friend or relative I am sure they will understand. Fedex or UPS are good options but very expensive if its a substantial package. Your Canadian friends will understand if you still send it via Royal Mail / Canada Post. I think it is likely that there will be back to work legislation in place very soon. As they are deemed an service essential to business, the economy, and rural communities, the government can force the strikers back to work with an Act of parliament. The bill has already passed the House of Commons but still has to go through the Senate (House of Lords equivalent). They delayed the vote on Friday until today and assuming it passes and is signed in the next couple of days the workers will be forced to comply the day after it is signed. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/senate-canada-post-legislation-strike-1.4919485 The rights or wrongs of that process is an entirely different debate, and one that will no doubt rage on after the workers are forced back, but when the trigger is pulled on something like this it usually ends up leaving no-one happy. An independent arbiter is put in place and both sides basically have to suck up whatever the arbitration decision is.
