MLBPA hires Bruce Meyer as lead negotiator

The Major League Baseball Players Association has hired longtime sports law attorney and litigator Bruce Meyer as senior director of collective bargaining and legal.

Meyer will focus on negotiation and enforcement of the collective bargaining agreement and report to MLBPA executive director Tony Clark, who announced the hire Monday. Meyer has advised players’ unions in basketball, football and hockey, most recently working the past two years under former MLBPA executive director Don Fehr with the NHL Players’ Association.

This was announced last week but I didn't see anything in the site archives and thought this might be of interest because the next agreement doesn't expire until 2022 yet the players are hiring this guy now
