MLS, union appear to reach agreement

Posted on 20 March 2010 by ASN Staff

Major League Soccer and the MLS players union will hold a conference call at 1pm (EDT) today where they are expected to announce a deal that would avoid an unprecedented work stoppage.

Don Garber

A person familiar with the matter told told The Associated Press this morning that the two sides had reached agreement on a five-year contract. MLS commissioner Don Garber, MLS Players Union executive director Bob Foose and director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service George Cohen will be on the call where they will discuss “the league’s collective bargaining agreement negotiations,” according to a statement by MLS. While this does not explicitly say an agreement has been reached, we can all do the math on that one.

Update: ASN plans to be on the call. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for the latest news, as well as for live coverage of the call.

    I need a computer program that will automatically start another program and not let that program close for a work computer. So basically, when the computer starts up, this program I am looking for will start a work-related program and force it to stay open, so that the only use of that computer would be to use the work program. Thank you!.
