AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said the Chargers have been a source of uncertainty in the NFL for months, with the league’s top officials in Washington and Oakland expressing reservations about their viability.
But in the past week, the NFL has taken action on several fronts to address the league.
The league announced Tuesday that the Chargers will be allowed to remain in Los Angeles through the 2021 season.
That will give the Chargers the option to keep the team in the city through 2024.
A league source told the Associated Press that the league has already reached out to the Chargers to negotiate a new contract with the team.
The source said the league is also in talks with a number of other teams about potential relocation.
The source also said the NFL is considering a potential relocation for San Diego, which would give the league two franchises, with one in Los Angles and one in San Diego.
The Chargers are hoping to keep their current stadium, which seats about 15,000, but the team could find it difficult to move to Los Angeles without a new stadium.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is scheduled to visit Los Angeles on Friday.
He is expected to be asked by the league about the status of the Chargers.
