MLB, Locked-Out Players Meet Again, No Sign Of Breakthrough
NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball and locked-out players resumed negotiations after a four-day break, talking for 95 minutes on the 95th day of the work stoppage with still no sign of a breakthrough.
Players suggested the sides meet again Monday. The union gave a written response to the owners’ latest proposal.
MLB negotiators left the meeting at the players’ association and said they would respond.
Trying to resolve baseball’s second-longest labor stoppage, the sides remain far apart on luxury tax, minimum salaries and the proposed bonus pool for pre-arbitration eligible players, and the union keeps rejecting management’s proposal for an international draft.
