Constangy attorney Chris Deubert recently published an article with Law360 on players in Minor League Baseball (MiLB) forming a union with the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) as its representative.
In the article, Deubert discusses several reasons the forthcoming labor negotiations with Major League Baseball will be complex, including the minor league player demographics, whether a collective bargaining agreement would cover all levels of the MiLB, and potential antitrust issues at the eventual expiration of any collective bargaining agreement.
Deubert is an attorney with more than twelve years of experience at law firms, in-house, and in academia, with extensive expertise in sports, litigation, and labor and employment. He also previously operated as a solo practitioner, representing mostly clients in the sports industry, including but not limited to professional sports teams and athletes, sports agents, a sports marketing agency, and an NFT-related sports start-up.
