The Professional Referee Organization (PRO) has come out in support of the Professional Soccer Referees Association (PSRA) union.
"The Professional Referee Organization (PRO) recognizes the wishes of its Officials to unionize and will be pleased to work alongside them for the mutual benefit of both parties in the months to come," a statement on PRO's website reads.
The support comes after it was reported the Major League Soccer's match officials had voted to certify the PSRA as their collective bargaining agent.
Referees, linesmen and fourth officials will all be included in the union.
