MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] The dispute between PRO, the MLS-backed referees organization, and the PSRA, the referees association, took another turn on Monday as PRO filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board alleging that the PSRA unlawfully tried to intimidate last weekend's replacement referees. Previously, the PSRA filed two unfair labor practice charges with the NLRB.

In a statement, PRO stated it learned that the PSRA had inaccurately told replacement officials in a March 7 e-mail that they would not be eligible to work for PRO in the future if they chose to work as replacements in games on March 8. PRO said it was not true and the threat is a violation of the National Labor Relations Act.

The PSRA previously filed unfair labor practice charges against PRO with the NLRB for what it claimed was PRO's failure to bargain in good faith and for allegations that management threatened the jobs of PSRA members.

    In short - instead of trying to resolve the dispute, PRO/MLS is intensifying it.
