Labor disputes in soccer: CanWNT & MLS referees

February 27, 2024

Hi there!

It’s all soccer, all the time in today’s episode of The GIST of It, thanks to two big labor battles brewing, one in the women’s game and one in the men’s. Co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz start off with the latest from the CanWNT, where the team’s players’ association is suing Canada Soccer for alleged financial negligence.

Then for part two, El and Steph kick it over to MLS to detail the ongoing referee lockout that remains in effect after the league’s season-opening weekend. Much to discuss.
