The players’ contracts expired at the beginning of the season (May), but they held off the strike untilSeptember when they would lose only one-sixth of their salaries.

As one player explained: “If we strikenext spring, there’s nothing stopping [the club owners] from letting us go until next June or July because they don’t havethat much at stake.”Use your knowledge of the sources and contingencies of power to explain why the MLB baseball players’ association hadmore power in negotiations by walking out in September rather than March.Cite the text to support your ideas in an essay with a minimum of 300 words in APA format.Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment is provided below.
