USFL And Its Players To Meet In September To Create First Collective Bargaining Agreement

According to a report in Sportico, the USFL and its players will meet in September to work on the league’s first-ever collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

“The reps are scheduled to meet with Fox Sports officials to begin negotiating the league’s first-ever collective bargaining agreement (CBA) on Sept. 13-15 in Atlanta. The docket of issues the players want to improve includes housing and compensation (right now, the USFL offers a salary of $4,500 a week for all active players). “

The main sticking point for the USFL players is to improve the current housing situation.

“USFL player reps hope to come to a resolution to improve the current living situation, which relies on players to pay for their own housing and hotel expenses once training camp ends.”

During the 2022 USFL season, with the help of The United Football Players Association, players voted to unionize with United Steelworkers, one of the country’s largest unions.

With the XFL having its draft in November and adding players to its player pool, let’s hope both sides can come to a resolution before the USFL season two begins. Players want certainty, and in the world of Spring Football, we know there has been anything but certainty. Just ask players who participated in the MLFB.

The USFL has had success, with many of its players making it on the main rosters of NFL teams and practice squads. The league also closed the door of its Trademark suit with the old USFL.

Now that the USFL knows the XFL pay scale, it will be interesting to see if they make some adjustments to level the playing field.

“The XFL, backed by Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and RedBird Capital, may already have stronger leverage to attract free-agent talent over the USFL; it’s expected to offer slightly better active player salaries than current USFL rates, with potentially higher payouts for quarterbacks, not including bonuses and other incentives.”

    You might just be seeing the first evidence of the downfall of the USFL. Unions have killed off many a good business in this country. If I owned the USFL I would tell the players if you join the Union you will be locked out of the league.
