It isn't a 48 hour period for the PA to speak with owners, it is for the players themselves to speak directly with owners/management. Although the PA wasn't notified, I'm sure that select players were told of it directly.
I'm sure that it is by design that the PA wasn't informed. The league is trying to bypass union leadership to communicate directly with players. It likely wants to get a message out there without it being channelled through the Fehr filter. Like it or not, it is what it is. Maybe it will result in a groundswell amongst the PA membership to get a deal done.
