When I was on the LAUSD board, we had one board member who would literally flip open her cell phone and talk with union staff while we were in closed session, disclosing our private dialog and getting direction. Three of us tried to move to censure her, but four didn't want to anger the union by identifying the illegal behavior during negotiations. Such is urban big city union negotiations.
