Anonymous:Could anyone help me with the meaning of longstop date. The context is labor relationships, contracts, etc.
A translation into Spanish or just the definition could help me a lot.
Thanks in advance.
If you google this, you get a handful of references.
I'm not sure of the definition. It seems to be 'the final date on which something, like an offer or a regulation, finally expires'. If so, I wonder why they don't say 'expiry date'? But, I could be wrong here.
Best wishes, Clive
