CFL, CFLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA
The CFL and players' association reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement, the league announced Wednesday.
The deal is subject to ratification.
The new CBA is expected to be a seven-year term, sources told 3DownNation's John Hodge.
It also gives players additional coverage for injury rehabilitation, reports TSN's Dave Naylor.
Seven of nine teams launched a strike Sunday after the league and CFLPA couldn't agree to a new CBA before the previous deal expired at midnight ET last Sunday.
Commissioner Randy Ambrosie outlined the CFL's previous offer to the union in a letter Saturday before negotiations stalled. The league had proposed a new seven-year pact that included $18.9 million in total guaranteed increases to the salary cap league-wide. That deal would have added two increases to the league's minimum salary and offered partially guaranteed contracts for the first time in CFL history.
