CFL labour talks continue Thursday

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

They’re still talking.

The CFL and CFL Players’ Association will continue talks on a new collective bargaining agreement Thursday.

The two sides met in face-to-face and separate meetings for just over 12 hours at a Toronto airport hotel on Wednesday.

Afterwards, CFL commissioner Mark Cohon told reporters the two sides will resume talks Thursday morning.

The current collective bargaining agreement expired at midnight Thursday, putting the start of CFL training camps this weekend in jeopardy, as the union has said its members would not play under the terms of the current CBA.

The main issue in the dispute is revenue sharing.

The Players’ Association wants a revenue sharing system in place to help determine the league mandated salary cap.

But Cohon says such a system would be detrimental to the league.
