Serie A strike threat remains



The opening weekend of the Serie A season could be postponed due to a players’ strike, as talks again failed to reach a conclusion today.

The Players’ Association (AIC) has threatened to strike in protest at the fact the collective bargaining contract has still not been signed by the union of Serie A clubs (Lega Serie A).


It was hoped there would be a breakthrough today during a meeting of the Lega in Milan, but there were not enough directors present to fully discuss the deal.


“In the absence of several Presidents, we decided to postpone the discussion on the collective bargaining contract, but we will continue along our planned route,” said Udinese patron Gino Pozzo.


The sticking point is Article 7, which protects the rights of players not to be frozen out of training with the squad.


“We are waiting to understand how this rule will be interpreted, to avoid the grey area that could lead to both bullying and also players forcing the hand of the club. We hope the season can start regularly without a strike.”


The opening weekend is set for August 27-28.


There is also another issue that the Lega Serie A are not happy with, namely the contribution to be paid to unemployed players.


The clubs want it made very clear in the collective bargaining contract that this contribution is provided by players who earn above a certain wage and will not cost anything to the clubs.


Meanwhile, the opening weekend of La Liga in Spain has officially been postponed due to their own players going on strike because of unpaid wages.

Serie A strike likely to go ahead



This weekend’s opening Serie A round is increasingly likely to be postponed after the Lega rejected a collective bargaining contract.

The Players’ Association (AIC) has threatened to go on strike for Week 1 if the deal was not signed by the Lega (union of Serie A clubs).


“The Lega meeting rejected the agreement with the AIC by a large majority, voting 18 to 2,” revealed Lega President Maurizio Beretta.


The only two clubs who voted in favour of the compromise are Cagliari and Siena.


There is still a small hope of seeing the teams play this weekend, as the Lega proposed two changes to the collective bargaining contract for players.


The first is with regards to Article 4, forcing players to pay the ‘solidarity’ contribution for those who find themselves without a club.


Article 7 will also include a change regarding training, as the players are adamant those in the middle of contract disputes must not be forced to train separately from the main squad.


The clubs claim this could make problems for the Coach in case he has to train the full squad of perhaps as many as 40 players.
