MLB News: League & MLBPA Launching Funds for Stadium Workers

The MLB lockout coverage understandably focuses on the situation’s impact on the players, owners, and fans, but stadium workers are deeply affected by the labor dispute.

On Friday, Jeff Passan reported that in addition to the MLBPA setting aside $1M in aide for those workers, MLB will also be setting up a fund.

Fans are obviously frustrated with the league’s decision earlier this week to cancel regular season games, but it doesn’t have the same financial impact that it does for stadium employees.

At least MLB and the MLBPA can agree on the fact that they should both provide financial assistance to the employees who now don’t have any work the first week of April.

  1. Inadvertently affected??? Both sides realize that there are plenty of other “little people” or regular people who work in and around baseball who are affected by their stupidity. All the Minor league teams and their workers, owners, players, all the store and stadium employees as above, plus all the TV, Radio people, even journalists to some extent. There’s always a huge network of people affected by work stoppages and a couple million dollars isn’t going to cover very many for very long over 30 teams.

    Besides, are they gonna renew this week as long as they keep squabbling and cancelling each week??
