During ongoing union negotiations, Bill Barker, a company vice president at the Tampa Tribune, sent employees a series of letters, which were legal and accurate, describing the negotiation process from his perspective. In talking to supervisors about the letters one night after he arrived for his third shift, an employee, Greg McMillen, said: “I hope that f**king idiot Barker doesn’t send me another letter.
