This morning Ashley Chase, Rebecca Woolington, Allie Grasgreen, Robert D’Andrea and Andrew Greif met with several members of the Board. Both parties agree that productive conversation is key to moving forward.
The idea of bringing in a third party mediator was brought up at the meeting, and both parties thought that it would be beneficial to work through these matters as efficiently and directly as possible. The newsroom hopes to meet again with the board and a mediator as soon as possible.
We did not discuss any details of the remaining staff recommendations to the Board at the meeting. We will not be returning to work until a discussion takes place.
We will give any updates today via the blog, but are asking that the media give us a chance to get things in order before we do any more interviews.
