MLB Umpires Reach 5 Year Deal w/ League

Major League Baseball owners and MLB umpires have ratified a five year collective bargaining agreement that will be enforced through the 2019 season. The deal was agreed to in late December and was subject to approval by Bud Selig and Major League Baseball as well as the World Umpires Association.

I believe this was probably a foregone conclusion that it would get done, especially after uninterrupted labor peace and such since the 1995 season, but it’s still great news and encouraging news to read about when a deal gets struck so easily.
