CA threatens to not pay players in wages row

CA threatens to not pay players in wages row

"To see the players talking about a strike - it's clear the negotiation has not been going well for a long period". The players have a revenue-sharing agreement under the current memorandum of understanding and CA wants to take that model away.

In March, CA tabled a deal for total payments of $419m which, contentiously, dismantles the fixed revenue percentage model.

However, a pay dispute has erupted between national governing body Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) over new contracts for male and female players.

Sutherland has accused the ACA of having "unfairly placed current players in a hard position".

"The ACA's reluctance to recognise the necessity of change and innovation as circumstances change has become a disappointing and consistent theme".

"Makes for an interesting men's and women's ashes.", he tweeted.

"Things haven't been going anywhere for months now, " he said.

The email read: 'CA is not contemplating alternative contracting arrangements to pay players beyond 30 June if their contracts have expired.

Last week, CA had offered its players multi-year contracts for the next three years in an attempt to lure key Australian players skip the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).

Cisco shares fall on weak revenue outlook
The company reported the earnings of $0.57/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.56/share. Narrowing in a bit closer, the 5 month price index is 1.11147, the 3 month is 1.05536, and the 1 month is now 1.03177.

Michael Hoey still in the hunt at Rocco Forte Open
And former Masters champion Mike Weir made his first halfway cut since November 2014 after a battling display. That means he's playing in Sicily this week instead of the $10 million BMW PGA Championship next.

Apple Updates macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS
The Apple fanatics can expect the company to announce the release of iOS 11 on the first night of the event. The most significant patch Apple released yesterday is for the macOS.

Under CA's proposal, only male worldwide players would have the chance to share in any surplus revenue, while other domestic male players and women at both domestic and global level would have to settle for fixed amounts which would not fluctuate according to the game's income.

"These payments are effectively funded by sharing global cricket financial surpluses", the CA proposal says.

It could leave fans facing a summer devoid of cricket action, in a year that is set to have one of the most highly anticipated Ashes series and Gilchrist believes that the fans deserve better. Male player payments would also increase significantly with the average global men's payments going up by 25 per cent by 2021/22.

The lucrative Twenty20 offers that would exist for Australia's top players should they not pen new central deals mean their bargaining power is stronger than ever and Vaughan predicts similar situations could soon arise with other boards.

Apart from Warner and Smith, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are the others who have been offered such contracts by their board.

"The players cease to be partners in the sport, and revert to being employees of the administration".

The current playing group and the ACA does not want to be the generation that discards this model and takes away the stake that all Australian cricketers now have in the game. He also warned players that in the absence of a new agreement, "players with contracts expiring in 2016-17 will not have contracts for 2017-18".

"I totally disagree with that", Nicholson said.
