Two months ago the CBA didn't expire and guys where signing contracts like everything was normal. Also the pressure point of actually missing pay is occuring now. But every labor negotiations has to go the name calling before serious negotiating. As the CBA expired in September we got this now instead of the summer.

Inthink it not expiring in June cost at least 2 weeks of serious negotiating because you would have the pressure point of a bunch of guys not having contracts
