Labor Website of the Year

Must be that time of year again.

Confined Space is once again in the running for Labor Website of the Year. You can vote for Confined Space in that colorful blue, green, yellow and red box in the upper right corner of this page. (Or, if for some strange and unexplainable reason you want to vote for some other site, you can do that here. Never let it be said that I'm not fair.)

The competition is run by LabourStart, "Where trade unionists start their day on the net." In case you've never checked it out, LabourStart is an international labor news service and is the source of the headlines you see on the right side of this site, as well as the health and safety news also over on the right.

You may remember last year, Confined Space came in third with 404 votes. The winner, the British National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) (a union with over 200,000 members) had 1,078 votes, fewer than the number of visits Confined Space gets on a typical weekday. So there's no reason we shouldn't win this going away. Right?

Voting ends on 31 January 2007. You can only vote for one site and you can only vote once. (Finally, just to make life more difficult, also note that you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your vote. You need to click on the link.)
