MLB and Players have a key meeting date to end the work stoppage

Today, six weeks have passed since the Major League Baseball (MLB) decreed the work stoppage, closing all sports and executive activities, after not reaching an agreement with the Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) by the collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

A month and a half from the measure, sadly for baseball fans there have been no progress between both parties with a view to getting out of this situation, which puts not only spring training at risk, but also the development of the 2022 season.

However, it seems that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it seems that MLB is preparing “basic economic proposals” to present the Players Union, so much so that there is already a specific date to finally resume negotiations.

MLB and Players have a key meeting date

The information was provided by Bob Nightengale, of USA Today, and notes that Major League Baseball will release, “within the next two weeks” the plan to the players, emphasizing that both parties are willing to resume the dialogue to end the lockout.

In this sense, the reporter assures that the Friday, January 21 is the date set by the Union and MLB to officially resume talks, which would give them a short time frame if the goal is to do not threaten the start of the 2022 season.
