    This is relevant to some of the 40-man roster players not in the majors.

    Most minor leaguers have a pretty tough time financially as it is.

    It seems pretty disingenuous to chisel them over some (relatively) minor (pun intended) money.

    In cases like this it is usually the attorneys and / or accountants that are behind it.

    The reality is that anyone needs lawyers to pursue legal action. MLB wasn’t going to roll over and with deep pockets, they could head this off for years. Players (and in this case former players) are starting to band together to fight for what they believe is fair. The courts will decide. That is our legal system.

    Especially in MiLB, old habits die hard.

    Yea I think the commissioner should be making what the least paid guys make. I guarantee you their wages would go up if that was the case.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Major League Baseball Players Association launches campaign to unionize Minor Leaguers

    NEW YORK, Aug. 29 – The Major League Baseball Players Association has launched a campaign to unionize Minor League Players across the country. The historic effort kicked off Sunday night after receiving overwhelming support from the MLBPA’s Executive Board.

    “Minor Leaguers represent our game’s future and deserve wages and working conditions that befit elite athletes who entertain millions of baseball fans nationwide,” MLBPA Executive Director Tony Clark said. “They’re an important part of our fraternity and we want to help them achieve their goals both on and off the field.”

    The campaign is supported by Advocates for Minor Leaguers, which has served as a voice and resource for players since 2020, bringing heightened attention to the substandard working conditions that exist throughout the Minor Leagues. Each member of the Advocates for Minor Leaguers staff has resigned to take on a new role working for the MLBPA.

    “This generation of Minor League Players has demonstrated an unprecedented ability to address workplace issues with a collective voice,” said Harry Marino, outgoing Executive Director of Advocates for Minor Leaguers. “Joining with the most powerful union in professional sports assures that this voice is heard where it matters most – at the bargaining table.”

    “This organizing campaign is an investment in the future of our game and our Player fraternity,” Clark said.

    Something needed to happen.

    The players families should not have to subsidize their minor league careers.

    I’m not a big union man at all but these kids need to make enough to cover expenses through salary and / or housing / meal per diem amounts that are realistic for whatever market they ate in.

    Between the MiLB unionization and now this about the international signing agreements, it appears MLB is about to have a reckoning with how they’ve mistreated their minor league talent

    Doubt that is a winnjng law suit though DR contract law may be different. Certainly dont think a player that signed for 300k less can show $17 million in damages.

    It’s a little surprising that they’d recognize them without a fight…but it tells me that they’ll play the same game they did with the major leaguers over the winter and in 2020. I’ll be curious to see what the players actually end up getting.

    Unless Major League players are willing tô strike and forfeit their million dollar paychecks for the benefit of minor leaguers not sure how much clout a minor league Union Will have. Minor leaguers on strike alone,? MLB teams would welcome the reduced ecpense!
