ONE LABOR HAPPY ENDING -- NFL AND ITS OFFICIALS
Published September 23, 1994
A tentative agreement was reached yesterday between the NFL and its game officials, "averting a strike that was scheduled for next month." According to sources familiar with the negotiations, the executive committee of the officials' new union voted 10-0 late Wednesday night to agree to a 7-year deal that will increase game fees 50-90% in the first year. Minimum yearly income will be doubled, and in some cases, tripled; payments to the officials' pension will increase 300%; and for the first time, game officials will receive a one-time severance payment equivalent to their salaries in their final year of service (David Aldridge, WASHINGTON POST, 9/23).
