Footballers argue that the time they spend traveling and training on the premises exceeds their time when applying a reduction in working hours

Pacheta leads an Elche training.

The players from Elche have not gone to train at the Martnez Valero stadium, as planned, as a measure of protest by the Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE) that the club applied to sports personnel with a 70% reduction in employment.

The footballers were summoned to the stadium in the morning to pass medical tests, although the club later communicated that they would carry out the tests at home and the subsequent training session at their homes.

The team coach, Jos Rojo 'Pacheta', He was in charge of transferring to the club the decision of the players, whose discomfort was already evident from weeks ago. The footballers, like other professional soccer teams, have proposed to the club a salary reduction, but not an ERTE, but their offer was not accepted by the leaders of the entity.

The CEO, Patricia Rodrguez, admitted this week that a new agreement was still being negotiated and that a new offer had been made to the players, whose response was not to hold the session in the stadium.

The footballers argue that the time they dedicate to moving and training in the stadium exceeds that which corresponds to them by applying a reduction in working hours, so they have unilaterally agreed, after informing the coaching staff, not to exercise this Wednesday.
