MLB Players Association seeks to unionize minor league players

The Major League Baseball Players Association, which has represented the major leagues in collective bargaining and labor law matters since 1966, seeks to do the same for the thousands of players who annually struggle in the minor leagues for notoriously low wages. .

The MLBPA has sent authorization cards to current minor leagues asking them to designate the union as their official collective bargaining representative, according to ESPN’s Joon Lee other Evan Drellich of the athletic.

If enough cards are returned in the affirmative, the MLBPA will confidentially send the results to the National Labor Relations Board with the expectation that a union election will be held for the minor league players, according to Drellich. The timing of such an election would depend on the NLRB’s administration processes, which could take months to complete.
