I'm currently in my french class, and I have to write up a speech on the upcoming CBA, and all those great things. I'm having a hard time finding any real facts about what will take place, and such. So if anyone has any links or writeups about it, I would greatly appreciate the help!
Thanks a million!

That's a pretty vague question, so you're probably not going to get many answers.

Here's what we do know:

The CBA Expires September 2004.

Owners opened negotiations with a $31M cap.

Players opened with a form of a luxury tax that wouldn't curb spending at all... don't remember the details. Maybe someone has a link for you.

Are you looking for just the process or what will ultimately expire. I can give you info on the process but no one knows what will ultimately be agreed upon.

Process.
I've got to get some points on what will be covered in it, like salary caps.
Once I get all that, I can make my own conclusions as to what I think would come of them.

Here's a copy of the current CBA: Link.

Essentially, collective bargaining is governed by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Anything that concerns "wages, hours or working conditions" must be collectively bargained for. Consequently, the CBA will largely address these issues. Let me know if you need more info.
