Labor Talks Again To Top Agenda At MLB's Quarterly Owners Meeting
MLB owners will begin their two-day quarterly owners meeting today in Paradise Valley, Ariz., with preparation for the upcoming CBA negotiations with the MLBPA again at the top of the agenda. No significant formal action items from the owners are expected, but much like owners' meetings throughout '10, discussion toward the upcoming labor talks will be paramount. The current five-year accord expires after the '11 season.
As been the case for the past year, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig has invited team GMs to take part in the meetings, as many of the discussions up for negotiation with the players involve on-field subjects such as the First-Year Player Draft and postseason format. Selig tomorrow afternoon will convene another session of his Special Committee for On-Field Matters.
