The NBA is in the final hours before the inevitable begins: a lockout. On Wednesday, team owners authorized a lockout if a new collective bargaining agreement isn't in place when the existing agreement expires at midnight Thursday. The final pre-lockout bargaining session between the owners and National Basketball Players Association will take place Thursday in New York. "If no progress is made between the two sides," union chief Billy Hunter told the Sports Business Journal, "then the NBA will impose a lockout.

The union for Major League Soccer players accused management of failing to bargain seriously but wouldn't say whether it would play under the terms of its expired labor contract. A day after MLS president Mark Abbott went public with the league's offer to start the season next month without a new deal, the union issued a pair of statements that weren't directly responsive and left open the possibility of the league's first strike. "It is unfortunate that MLS doesn't see the modest changes we have proposed as being good for the league, especially since until these changes are made, more and more quality players who should be playing in MLS will not be doing so," MLS Players Union executive director Bob Foose said yesterday in an e-mail to the Associated Press.

The National Hockey League and the NHL Players' Association ended four days of collective bargaining on a positive note yesterday in New York. "We spent the last four days in small-group meetings continuing to review and negotiate various systemic and economic issues," said Ted Saskin, the union's senior director. "The two sides will resume small-group discussions on Monday in Toronto. " In all, the parties met for 26 hours this week. "There was healthy dialogue, and progress continued to be made on many operational issues relating to a new collective-bargaining agreement," said Bill Daly, the league's executive vice president and chief legal officer.

If you're too nice, you may have a problem at the office. You might be popular at work if you're agreeable, extroverted and smart. But it's possible to be too agreeable and too extroverted for your own good, say professors at Vanderbilt University. In win-lose bargaining situations - negotiating for a raise, ferreting out a bargain price, or jockeying for power - those traits could help you lose. At Vanderbilt, professors Bruce Barry and Raymond Friedman spent two years studying bargaining-table behavior.

Baseball owners will go to federal court in one month and attempt to impose their own labor rules on players unless there is a collective-bargaining agreement before then, The Associated Press quoted sources as saying yesterday. Bargaining over the last few months has narrowed the differences, but players and owners failed to meet their informal All-Star Game deadline for a deal. If owners go to court, they will ask U.S. District Judge Sonia Sotomayor for permission to declare an impasse in bargaining and to implement their latest proposal, the AP said.

The Temple University Health System had no right to phase out a long-standing policy, of paying for the children of hospital employees to attend the school, without first bargaining with the union over the issue, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board has determined. The ruling requires Temple to reinstate the tuition policy it changed in March and reimburse about 150 nurses and other professional staff. Each is owed between $7,000 and $15,000, depending on whether the individual lives in Pennsylvania or out of state, said Bill Cruice, executive director of the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals (PASNAP)

Capping a 17-year quest by organized labor, Gov. Casey signed into law yesterday a bill allowing public-employee unions to negotiate contracts requiring nonmembers to pay "fair share" dues. The immediate effects of the legislation, which pertains to all state and school employees covered by bargaining units, will likely be attempts by local teacher unions to reopen school district contracts. "We are looking at possibly reopening contracts," said William Johnson, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania State Education Association.

A snappy retort followed by a stare-down. That was behind an angry exchange between Jeremy Jacobs, the Boston Bruins' owner, and Bob Goodenow, the NHL Players' Association executive director, which cast a shadow over Tuesday's labor talks in New York. On Wednesday, the league did an about-face during its board of governors meeting, saying it would not start the season this fall with replacement players. The season will begin only with a new collective bargaining agreement, the NHL said.

The National Labor Relations Board is expected to tell players and owners this week, probably tomorrow, how it will rule on the union's unfair labor practice charges. Management's negotiating committee meets today in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., to formulate a "best offer," and owners say bargaining is scheduled to resume tomorrow. But union head Donald Fehr said yesterday he wasn't sure when bargaining would begin, and there was talk of a possible players' meeting tomorrow night in Tampa, Fla. In addition, union officials and management lawyers might have to go to Washington tomorrow to meet with NLRB general counsel Fred Feinstein.

In a move to overcome an undercurrent of animosity lingering from past contract talks, negotiators for Burlington County College and its faculty union have met to restore a working relationship before the teachers' contract expires in June. Negotiating teams met at least eight times last month to discuss the bargaining language and scope of topics that both sides agreed were necessary for a settlement. Each side is trying to establish a foundation of good faith in light of the acrimonious talks of 1988 and the strike of 1984.
