MLS Proposes 2-year CBA Extension to Players, No Salary Cuts
Major League Soccer is proposing no more pay cuts to its players for the 2021 season but in exchange is asking for a two-year extension of its collective bargaining agreement. MLS presented the revised agreement to the MLS Players Association a week after the league invoked its force majeure clause. The league is proposing that players receive their full salaries after they agreed to a 5% pay reduction as part of a renegotiated CBA in June when the league returned with a tournament in Florida. As part of the new proposal, MLS wants the current CBA to be extended through 2027.
