Professional Hockey Players' Association declares strike on Central League

The Professional Hockey Players' Association announced they have declared a strike against the Central Hockey League, effective immediately.

“The economic impact of the PHPA’s comprehensive proposal package, most of which has yet to be countered, is modest by today’s standards,” stated PHPA executive director Larry Landon on the union's website. “The league has not responded to necessary player priority components for a finalized agreement such as salary cap, off-ice insurance, per diem, and travel reimbursement, which has significantly impeded the negotiation process.”

The PHPA states that their last proposal on May 22 was not responded to by the league owners. They have said the negotiating team will continue to try and come to an agreement with the league.
