I know essentially nothing about the suddenly called BOT meeting yesterday other than what has already been reported in the Southern and DE. Here is the announcement of the meeting, the closest thing to an agenda available, which Kristi linked to over at Unions United.
As the DE story made particularly clear, the chairman of the board was "insulted" not to be consulted about the marketing campaign--or at least the new logo. I wasn't there, but do hope that their questions go somewhat deeper than the logo. The DE story also notes that our outside marketing firm has received a $950,000 budget for this year. The private part of the meeting, closed to the public, may have been the most interesting from our perspective, as there the board wanted to discuss court proceedings against the board (which could allude to the unions' Unfair Labor Practice charge) and "collective negotiating matters".
As our current board has shown at least once before, at least some of its members have an independent streak. This could very well be a good thing.
