AFL and AFLPA to resume pay negotiations

The AFL and the AFL Players Association will continue pay negotiations this week in the hopes of averting a pre-season strike.

Talks between the two parties last year had stalled, with the league resisting demands for a revenue-sharing model in the new collective bargaining agreement.

The players’ union is aiming for a set percentage of roughly 25 per cent of the game’s overall revenues.

A player strike affecting next month’s pre-season competition is still possible if a deal can’t be reached.

“It’s not really appropriate to be talking about the pre-season competition at this stage,” AFL Players Association chief Paul Marsh told AAP, as quoted by SBS.

“We want to get things moving. Let’s get these talks going and hopefully we can get to a resolution as soon as possible.”

Marsh confirmed AFL chief Gillon McLachlan would not be part of the pay talks this week but said that was not unusual at this point in the negotiations.
