What They're Saying: Steve Taylor

"Completing the unionization process is a testament to the strong will of the officials and the hard work of many who have helped along the way. The PRO2 officials have been looking forward to this day for a long time and they are excited to now be bargaining over working conditions as we move forward."

-- Steve Taylor, the Professional Soccer Referees Association executive director, on the decision of PRO to withdraw its appeal of the NLRB decision in favor of officials working in the NWSL, USL and MLS Next Pro and recognize their 68-3 unionization vote. PSRA and PRO have agreed to a no strike/no lockout agreement through the end of the 2022 season and will begin talks on a collective bargaining agreement ahead of the 2023 season.
