THE SECRET WORLD OF BASEBALL'S LABOR NEGOTIATIONS
Published June 2, 1995
Lawyers for both MLB owners and the MLBPA continue to meet "under much secrecy," reports Hal Bodley of USA TODAY. MLBPA Asst General Counsel Lauren Rich has been representing the union, "often accompanied" by agent Steve Fehr, brother of MLBPA Exec Dir Don Fehr, with attorneys Stan Jaspen and Rob Manfred representing the owners. Bodley reports that "communication has been excellent" and the relationship between the two sides "has improved dramatically." One scenario discussed "includes a temporary agreement that would extend through the 1996 season. The union might go for that; owners likely would not" (USA TODAY, 6/2).
