MLB, union negotiators meet again after canceled games

Two days after MLB commissioner Rob Manfred canceled the first two series of the regular seasonthe league and union hold an informal meeting Thursday, confirmed The Post’s Joel Sherman.

Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem and union negotiator Bruce Meyer scheduled a one-on-one meeting in New York. According to Sherman, the two parties are trying to lower the temperature by only allowing key negotiators to meet without revealing the exact time and location of their meeting. Halem and Meyer will attempt to determine when the next meeting will be and where the two sides are.

Manfred has canceled games after the two sides failed to reach a new contract for a full season by the deadline set by the league at 5pm on Tuesday. The MLBPA rejected what it described as the league’s “best” offer after nine days of negotiations in Jupiter, Fla.

One of the biggest hurdles to overcome is the luxury tax threshold. The union is targeting a $238 million threshold for 2022, rising to $263 million by 2026, while the league offered a $220 million threshold for this year, rising only to $230 million by 2026 US dollar would rise.
