UMPIRES SAY NO TO MLB'S LATEST OFFER
Published January 6, 1995
MLB has rejected the latest contract proposal from the MLB Umpires Union. The union proposal calls for "a pay hike from the current range of $60,000-$175,000 to $100,000-$320,000 and a doubling of all post-season pay pool." NL President Len Coleman said "there is no appetite for those numbers." MLB has locked out its umps, who will not be paid without a deal. The league submitted a counter-proposal on Wednesday which was "not well received" after the union had declined a no-strike, no-lockout deal that would "roll over the existing contract" until a settlement. Speculation is that if no deal is reached, MLB may look to replacement umpires (Rod Beaton, USA TODAY, 1/6).
