MLS Players Union cannot rule out strike action

The MLS Players Union cannot rule out strike action after talks over the CBA broke down on Thursday.

The union has refused an offer to extend the talks for a third time.

"We have advised our players to keep working for the time being, but as of Friday, they will be doing so without a collective bargaining agreement," Bob Foose, the union's executive director, said in a statement. "In the meantime, all options are being considered as the process continues."

The union has refused to rule out going on strike. The league had said it won't lock out players and was willing to begin the season under the old deal. The campaign is due to kickoff inside a month.

But Foose said "there simply hasn't been enough progress made" to warrant extending the contract.
