NHL, Players Union to Resume Labor Talks After One Week Hiatus

November 18, 2012

The National Hockey League and its players’ association will resume negotiations aimed at reaching a new collective bargaining agreement after a one-week hiatus.

“We have tentatively agreed to get back together on Monday, either late in the afternoon or early evening,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said on the league’s website. “The meeting was requested by the Union and it’s their agenda. We will see what they have to tell us.”

The NHL and the NHLPA last met on Nov. 11.

NHL teams have been locked out since Sept. 16, the day after the old labor contract expired. The NHL has canceled a total of 327 regular-season games, including all games through Nov. 30 and the annual Winter Classic scheduled for Jan. 1. The regular season was supposed to begin Oct. 1.
