The F League claims to have taken “a step forward” to carry out the new agreement and avoid the strike


The F League indicated this Tuesday that it has taken “a step forward” at an economic level to unblock the current situation with the new Collective Agreement and avoid a strike on this first day of the championship, although from the social bank they consider that “the positions They’re pretty far apart.”

The employers’ association and the social bank made up of the Futpro, AFE, Futbolistas On, UGT and CC.OO unions had their second meeting this Tuesday at the Interconfederal Mediation and Arbitration Service (SIMA) to try to reach an agreement that allows the start of this next weekend of the professional women’s soccer championship.

However, this second day was also unsuccessful and as indicated by the Comisiones Obreras, “after several hours of meeting, players, unions and employers resume the negotiations of the agreement tomorrow Wednesday to avoid the strike next weekend.”

“The positions are quite far apart,” the union asserted from its official ‘X’ account of the Federation of Services to the Citizenship of Workers’ Commissions, where it made it clear that they will continue to “defend fairer and more dignified wages.”

For its part, the F League conveyed to the unions “the need to reach an agreement to achieve a climate of stability that allows the project of professional women’s football to grow, especially after the recent sporting events and
institutional events that have occurred in recent weeks”.

In a statement, the employers insisted on “remembering the very complex economic situation in which the women’s professional football project finds itself” because of the “economic drowning to which” its clubs and the organization “are being subjected” by the RFEF , when Luis Rubiales was in charge, as well as due to the actions of the Higher Sports Council” due to the obligation to transfer 20 percent of their commercial income to the federal entity.


The body chaired by Beatriz Álvarez stressed “the importance of ensuring the economic viability of the project, an obligation that the Sports Law itself establishes”, but made it clear that they are “aware of the importance of achieving, once and for all, a scenario of stability and social peace that allows Spanish women’s football to continue to grow”.

For this reason, the employers and their clubs “have wanted, once again, to take a step forward and reach out by making a notable economic effort on the minimum wage, completely eliminating partiality and

“Likewise, committed to our status as female competition, important benefits have been proposed in terms of conciliation and maternity, such as aid for breastfeeding or for the care of the soccer players’ children during training,
as well as aid projects for the training and professional development of soccer players, such as the creation of a fund to help pay for their university studies and the development of programs that guarantee their training in various fields,” added Liga F.

The employers’ association assured that Spanish football “as a whole faces very important challenges, a historic moment that can only be faced from a context in which peace and understanding of all prevail.”
the actors”, for which reason it makes “an appeal to the rest of the institutions to be up to the task and contribute to this new scenario”.

It must be remembered that in the event that an agreement is not reached in this conciliation act in the SIMA, a call for a strike would begin at 00:00 on Friday, September 8 and that would continue until 24:00 on Sunday 10. and later, from 00:00 on Friday the 15th to 24:00 on Sunday the 17th.
