The NBA and the National Basketball Referees Association entered into a seven-year collective bargaining agreement, the two sides announced Thursday.

The seven-year agreement will begin with the 2022-23 season and run through the 2028-29 campaign. The sides said it would not announce terms of the agreement, per league policy.

The previous CBA expired at the end of last season. The new agreement addresses salary, travel, pension and marketing rights issues, according to a statement from the referees association.

The association said the contract was ratified by “an overwhelming majority of the NBA referees.”
