Case Study: Major League Umpires Assoc. v. MLB



This  case study recalls the unfortunate strategy employed by Major League Baseball umpires during the 1999 season to resign en masse and to negotiate with the league under a separate corporate structure. After the tactic failed miserably and the umpires capitulated, the League chose to accept the resignations of some of the umpires. The fired umpires filed a grievance, which ended up in federal appellate court. This case study analyzes the standards under which the League's decisions are reviewed and how the court settled the dispute under applicable law and the Collective Bargaining Agreement then in force.
