The Canadian Football players’ association has let the membership know they should be ready to attend training camp.

More than 97 per cent of the players voted to strike if needed, but the negotiations appear to have turned in a positive direction because the player have been advised to report for training camps when they open on May 19.

The CFL made a unilateral decision to delay negotiations until April 29. B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian said the union was prepared for any situation during the bargaining process.

The CFLPA’s bargaining committee followed by instructing players not to arrange travel to the league’s member clubs for training camp. The group has also informed players that the association does not intend to work past May 18th unless a new deal can first be agreed upon.

Players reported to training camp in May of 2014 without a CBA in place.
