At least compared to "real" CBA labor negotiations. Via Henry Abbott @truehoop "NBA bargainers did 6 hours. Ford UAW (labor trash talk!) meeting about 80 hours/week already and ramping it up." From the linked article of the Detroit Free Press: "Contract talks between the UAW and the Detroit Three are entering a more intense phase with less than two weeks left before the current national labor contract expires. Chrysler’s negotiators are planning to meet for the second straight weekend and some negotiators for GM are planning to meet during the weekend, according to people familiar with the discussions. While Ford’s team is planning to take the weekend off, its negotiators have been meeting six days a week for 12 or more hours a day." Can't hammer out a deal if you don't put in the meetings and preparations. GET TALKING!
