NBA, refs to meet today

October 28, 1995|By LOS ANGELES TIMES

Six days before the start of its season, the NBA will sit down today in New York with Fred Slaughter, head of the locked-out game officials, for a negotiating session -- their second.

The league has barred its referees from working until a new bargaining agreement is reached and is using minor-league replacements in two-man crews to officiate exhibition games. Players have been critical of the replacements.

The NBA has offered a 10 percent raise this season, across the board, with 5 percent raises each of the next four seasons.
