New proposal from NHL Players’ Association: NHL responds The places surrounding Manhattan warmed up as the bargaining between the NHL Players’ Association and NHL intensified centering on the new proposal. It had been the third day continuing on the talks between the two parties who had finally came to a new proposal standing on two issues.
The center of the disputes was on the Midtown law firm, which eventually was office of Proskauer Rose.
The law firm had given advice to NHL hockey regarding the strategies to impose the lockouts caused from labor disputes in various years and also in this year.
On Thursday, after a three days continual clash, NHL Players’ Association have heard responses from the NHL hockey surrounding a proposal but no discloser was given about the issues in the proposal.
The lockout is still in progress and the will continue even more. Union’s executive directors, Donald Fehr and Bettman both have clearly stated that the talks regarding this have not been completed yet.
Fehr reported the media in an optimistic way when was asked to told about the negotiations but he did not revealed any of the proposal clearly stating that the talk will continue more.
“It is always better to arrange meeting and do the talking rather than to keep quiet,” spoke Fehr. In his way, Bettman delivered the same speech with his own concern as was being reported by Fehr.
Speaking to the media Bettman mentioned,” To get to the right place we are giving all our time in the work. Hope this hard work pays at the end,”
The officers of the union spoke scarcely about the reply of the league relating the proposal and both the sides’ showed no interest in revealing the discussion.
But a very little issue has come to the light. The union officials have told the media that the proposal was based on revenue sharing among the clubs and also make-whole provision. This is a type of mechanism where the existing contracts are being honored with a minimal salary cap.
There is also going to be a 50-50 split over the total revenue of the league which was before 57-43 under the expired collective bargaining agreement on Sept. 15th.
The biggest obstacle stills remains under the make-whole issue for which the two parties have not yet come to an agreement. The union wants the league to honor the existing contracts in full but the league has denied.
The total session of bargaining is now 13 hours and will continue more.
