UMPS READY TO WORK IN TORONTO?
Published April 24, 1995
A crew of locked-out MLB umpires plan to be in Toronto on Opening Day, either to work or to picket. MLBUA General Counsel Richie Phillips said he believes if the Ontario Labor Board rules that replacement umpires are barred by Ontario provincial law from working Blue Jays games, the leagues will be forced to end their lockout. In that event, the Toronto umpires will be on hand to work the Blue Jays' night game against the A's. The Ontario Labor Board has scheduled a hearing at 9:30am EDT on Wednesday to look at the MLBUA's contention. The leagues are expected to argue that the Ontario law does not apply to them because they are not Canadian employers (Murray Chass, N.Y. TIMES, 4/24).
