From USA Today (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/dailypitch/2002-07-24-pitch_x.htm) You have to scroll through the pro-Twinkies garbage, but near the bottom they start talking about the labor situation with both Konerko and Hocking.

They also mentioned something in the Minnesota local papers today similar to this. I didn't see anything mentioned in any of the Chicago online papers.

Following the meetings, White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko told reporters he didn't think there would be a strike by the players and that any type of work stoppage might be avoided this season. Minnesota's Denny Hocking, the team's player representative to the union, said no vote was taken on a strike date and no specific date was discussed.
