The Saskatchewan Roughriders are in a holding pattern right now, thanks to a work stoppage by the CFLPA.  

Sunday was scheduled to be the start of training camp for teams across the CFL, but a new deal on a collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players’ union couldn’t be reached by the deadline. This had the CFLPA starting the work stoppage for seven of the league’s nine teams. 

The Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Elks are expected to join the other teams in the stoppage once they are legally allowed to join based on Alberta labour laws.  

While the practice for the Riders was cancelled on Sunday, a number of players still held drills on their own, hoping to stay in shape for when they can resume training camp ahead of the 2022 season.  

There is no word at this time when negotiations are expected to resume.
