For the first time in history, a labor-management agreement for minor league players was agreed upon. The treatment of minor league players is expected to improve significantly.
Local media such as ‘The Athletic’ quoted sources on the 30th (Korean time) and reported that the Major League Secretariat and the players’ union had agreed on a labor-management agreement for minor league players.
The agreement will be finalized after a vote by minor league players.
The agreement, which is valid for five years, allows minor league players to play in better conditions than before.
The most notable is the salary increase. Wages that did not even reach the minimum wage level will be raised significantly.
Rookie level players from $4,800 to $19,800, Single A from $11,000 to $26,200, Top Single A from $11,000 to $27,300, Double A from $13,800 to $30,250 Dollar, Triple A will be significantly raised from $17,500 to $35,800.
In addition, minor league players can also use the dispute settlement method, which is one of the measures to prevent the aggravation of labor-management disputes. 온라인카지노
The Major League Players Union included minor league players as members in September last year. Afterwards, in November of the same year, collective bargaining with the secretariat began, and in the end it seems to have come to fruition.
Both sides are aiming to reach a final agreement before the start of the minor league season.
The Athletic explained that even if an agreement could not be reached, the season would not be disrupted due to strikes or lockouts.
