On Monday, the league will hold virtual question-and-answer sessions with the list managers of the 18 clubs – in three groups of six – to clarify the details of the revised CBA, with the issue of the return match likely being discussed according to the sources. The new CBA will not be blocked until 2021, although the League and the union have committed to work together on a new agreement for the period 2022-2024. The AFL and AFLPA have also agreed on provisions that could result in a decrease or increase in the player payment pool for 2021, depending on whether industry revenues are above expectations or well below expectations. Given the continuing uncertainties regarding the impact of COVID in 2021, the AFL and AFLpa have also agreed on a 2021 system in which players will participate in the upward financial trend if the sector`s actual football revenues exceed the AFL`s current forecasts and the overall amount of the sector should be lower than the AFL`s forecast. As part of the revised agreement, the AFL and AFLPA also agreed to establish a working group to examine future revenue-generating opportunities, such as revised play and revised rules on independent agreements and trade restrictions for players. AFL General Manager Gillon McLachlan praised the 2021 variant and thanked AFL CEO Paul Marsh and AFL players for their full collaboration during the 2020 season and their willingness to work with the AFL and clubs to prepare for 2021. “I want to thank Paul and all the stakeholders for the sacrifices they have made this year and for their continued commitment to keeping our industry sustainable and strong while continuing to work on the continuing challenges of the Covid pandemic,” said McLachlan. “Our players have been fantastic in their approach to the game, and while everyone in the industry has had to endure pain, we recognize the importance of the players and the need to ensure that we have a system that continues to attract and retain the best athletes in the country.” AFLPA CEO Paul Marsh thanked the players for their commitment to the game in securing a revised CBA. “We believe this is a fair agreement that recognizes the role that players continue to play in continuing the sector`s growth, despite the continuing challenges of COVID-19,” Marsh said.
“The players take their partnership with the industry very seriously, and the result of the revised CBA reflects this, while minimizing the impact on the pay of individual players.” What is important is that there will be no cuts to programs and services that support mental health and player development off the field, as well as the Injury Fund to support our former players. “During an incredibly difficult year for everyone, I would like to thank the players for their willingness to buy everything that was launched for them, while we have been working all year on a number of complex issues, and Gill and the AFL for the importance given to the gaming group in deciding on a fair offer for the players and the game.” In the United States, about three-quarters of private sector employees and two-thirds of public sector employees are entitled to collective bargaining. This right came to American workers through a series of laws. In 1926, the Railway Labour Act granted railway workers collective bargaining and now covers many transport workers. B, for example in airlines. In 1935, the National Labor Relations Act clarified the bargaining rights of most other private sector employees and established collective bargaining such as “U.S. policy.” The right to collective bargaining is also recognized by international human rights conventions. Every year, millions of American workers negotiate or renegotiate their negotiated contracts.
