BASEBALL OWNERS READY NEW LABOR PROPOSAL
Published February 21, 1996
Negotiators for MLB's owners plan to give union representatives another new proposal today. The N.Y. TIMES reports the pace of proposals is "quickening." The owners' counter-proposal is seen as an effort to settle the dispute and get a new CBA before the season. While the two sides have shared tax proposals, they are "no closer together" than last March when a federal judge ordered the game to resume (N.Y. TIMES, 2/21). Randy Levine, the owners' chief negotiator, hopes for a deal by March 31 (N.Y. POST, 2/21).
