CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG? IHL SAYS, YES WE CAN
Published October 7, 1994
IHL Commissioner Robert Ufer announced this week that the league, currently without a collective bargaining agreement, will have one signed in the near future. Ufer said that the IHLPA has informed the league that they are "in agreement with us over the revenue-sharing salary-structure concept." But Ufer added that while a deal is not certain, "There will be no work stoppage in the IHL." Houston Aeros Player Rep Curtis Hunt said that IHL players are willing to agree to the "soft cap" proposal: "Everybody wants to see no salary cap, but you have to compromise, sacrifice" (Jody Goldstein, HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 10/6).
