by on Sep.25, 2010 @ 4:50 am, under NPB

The umpire's union met with the NPB on Friday to continue their negotiations on labor regulations in connection with their agreement to extend welfare pensions for umpires.

The two sides agreed that all contracts should contain clauses that include information about works hours.  It was was agreed that the umpire's day begins 2 hours before game time and ends when the game finishes, or when the umps complete any reports that might need to be filed with the NPB.

The two sides are still in disagreement with regards to vacation days and will continue their deliberations on another day.
