MLS, union release joint statement, say talks are ongoing

Posted on 10 March 2010 by ASN Staff

Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Union released the following statement Wednesday night, March 10:

Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Union met in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of George H. Cohen, the Director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS). MLS and the Players Union have agreed to continue collective bargaining agreement discussions with the FMCS.

The two sides announced last week that they had called in Cohen and the FMCS after a twice-extended deadline to extend the CBA came and went. MLS teams continue to proceed with their preseason schedules, with last night’s Crew vs. Toluca CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal match becoming the first meaningful competition of the season.

    It is interesting that after two days, neither side is trying to spin the story or their side of the story. This could be a good thing. I would love to be a fly on the wall in their meeting room.
