I'm not entirely sure whether meek transport checks the certificate, because it's not necessary since it just acts an encapsulation proxy for Tor traffic.

However the IT admin would be able to see to which meek bridge are you connecting to after the MitM (meek just sends the bridge in HTTP Host header that is normally hidden inside TLS tunnel).

I haven't checked meek's development in a while, so this might not be entirely accurate.
