Toronto – Tomorrow, members of the Canadian Football League Players’ Association (CFLPA) in Hamilton will stand together in solidarity on Melrose Avenue outside Tim Hortons Field.
Canadian football fans in Hamilton are invited to attend the location where members will be present to sign autographs and stand together in a show of solidarity to demand the Canadian Football League gets back to the table.
On Sunday afternoon, CFLPA members were locked out of club facilities by team owners in seven of nine cities.
Every effort continues to be made by the CFLPA bargaining committee to reach a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the CFL on a new and fair collective agreement (CBA).
Since the CFL walked away from the bargaining table, the CFLPA has told the CFL that it is prepared to continue negotiations anywhere and at any time in order to get players back to work and fans back in the stands and celebrating a new season. The current CBA expired on Sunday, May 15.
CFLPA Solidarity in Hamilton event details:
Location: 64 Melrose Avenue, Hamilton, ON
Date: Tuesday, May 17
