They need to get rid of the entire board, especially the chairman. It is filled with cronies with huge conflicts of interest.

Once again, Corp has thumbed its nose to appointing a Operator to the Board. (Even though we run 95% of the stores). Can you imagine the impact of the company appointing a operator to the board? It would certainly help to quell the current acrimony between us and them. But then again, THEY DONT CARE. The Partnership id DEAD.

If you are an owner and you are sick and tired of being abused by Chris K, Joe E, and this board, WAKE UP! How many PACE, Delivery fee changes, Franchise Changes do you want?? Especially when corp ignores the owners and negotiates costs (delivery fees, etc) with NO operator Input. Your last best hope? Join and Support the NOA. Now more than ever it is critical to stay united and oppose these draconian terms. Or be a sheeple and get lead to the slaughter.

Owners will NEVER get an operator on the board so don't waste time or energy on it. There are several corporate governance reasons. Even aside that, the single board member would have zero effect on the board's decisions. The duty of a board member is solely to the shareholders. They have no duty to the operators (and this would include an operator board member).

Get 100% membership in NOA and stay completely unified. This is the ONLY way to have the operator agenda ut into effect. If the owners are unified, there is nothing that corporate can do to you. NOA can control the public narrative if it has unity behind it. Stock analysts and media will ignore Chris K and seek the NOA leadership for comments. They will only talk to Chris K to ask him how he plans to , say, force uneatable fake meat on the owners when the NOA says that they will not stock them or sell them in the restaurants even if cases are force shipped.

That's just one example. Look at what franchise owners in other formerly abusive systems did.

I think we can assume that board members can't discuss internal board business or deliberations with the general public. That would include their fellow Owner/Operators. So when other Owner/Operators ask this hypothetical MCD board member what's going on behind those closed doors, the board member can't discuss, especially after signing a foot-high stack of NDAs.

Their fellow Owner/Operator will immediately label the board member a "sell-out" and the negative gossip would start. Before long the BOD member becomes a pariah and the most unpopular person in the system.

No offense to the Owner/Operator culture but it's just human nature.

That is 100% correct.
Moreover, it helps Chris K and his team because it widens disunity among the franchise owner community. The more that he can isolate groups of o/os from tech other and sow disagreement and distrust of fellow o/os, the better for him. It makes his job of forcing stupid things onto the system that much easier.
