Collective Bargaining Agreement

The current Collective Bargaining Agreement between the CFL and CFLPA was ratified June 29, 2010. The agreement lasts four years through the 2013 season, expiring the day before the 2014 training camp starts. Negotiations are currently underway on a new agreement.

A summary of the 2010 agreement and new performance enhancing drug testing policy are available. If you can provide a copy of any official CFL documents, please contact me.
