BASEBALL MAY AVOID COURT, MAKE DEAL TO PLAY COMPLETE SEASON
Published May 19, 1995
Baseball's owners and players "say a deal might be struck within the next day or two," to settle the NLRB's labor practice complaint against the owners, which could "ensure" the '95 season is played to its conclusion, according to Mark Maske in this morning's WASHINGTON POST. Maske reports that the players "could agree to a no-strike pledge in return for a promise by the owners that they won't attempt to declare an impasse in negotiations and unilaterally impose terms of employment through a certain date." If the two sides fail to settle, they must appear in court Monday before an NLRB judge to begin a trial. Owners Negotiating Committee Chair John Harrington: "I think everybody knows it's in management's and the union's best interests to get that done" (WASHINGTON POST, 5/19).
