CFL labour talks to resume Wednesday

By The Canadian Press

TORONTO - Labour negotiations between the CFL Players' Association and the CFL will resume Wednesday in Toronto.

The CFLPA confirmed talks will pick up next week in a release sent on Sunday. The two sides had broken off negotiations earlier this week.

The current agreement expires at midnight ET on Thursday and training camps are scheduled to open next Sunday.

The regular season is slated to kick off June 26.

There has been one players' strike since the formation of the CFLPA in 1965. It came in 1974 and lasted three weeks during training camp before a three-year agreement was signed with no regular-season games lost.
