Italian players explain potential Serie A strike
The Italian Players Association admit they could go on strike before the start of the Serie A season.
Yesterday the captains of all 20 clubs signed an open letter threatening to postpone the opening weekend of the season if the Lega Serie A didn’t complete the collective bargaining contract.
“It’s not right that every time the option of a strike emerges we are met by the usual clichés about rich players,” complained AIC President Tommasi.
“We are not talking about money in this situation, but just about the rights of each player to train with his team.
“The Presidents first gave a positive response to the proposal, then refused to sign the contract.”
