The WNBA`s new collective bargaining agreement, announced last week and announced for its progress, follows a season in which the League`s odes to empowerment and their work practices have become economically irreconcilable. On social media, players have documented all sorts of headaches — annoying travel delays on commercial flights for street games, 6-foot and 6-foot feet stuck in medium-sized seats — a lot of these disruptors because they were daily, the troubles you and I have of talentless Nobodies , tolerate, but that, stratospherically, should not tolerate good basketball players who depend on their bodies. – At least $1.6 million in league and off-season team marketing agreements, which would recognize both the best performances and highlight the diversity of the league and create up to $300,000 in additional annual cash for selected players. – At least $750,000 in prizes for special competitions that will begin with the 2021 season. – New participation of 50-50 sales from the 2021 season, based on the league, which achieves sales growth targets from broadcast agreements, marketing partnerships and licensing agreements. – Increased cash bonuses for performance bonuses (z.B for WNBA MVP and Rookie of the Year) and newly created cash bonuses (e.g. B for each player named « WNBA All-Defensive First Team »). Benefits of Pregnancy It was no secret that the last CBA was archaic in her language. He listed « pregnancy » as a condition (this CBA toes as the line, but we`ll get it later) and players who are pregnant during the season were only 50% of their guaranteed salary for their pregnancy leave. This is one of the areas on which the new CBA has focused: the modern woman.
This is one of the first major sports collective agreements to do so in this way. Faced with the unpleasant prospect of playing the 2020 season without a new collective bargaining agreement, the WNBA and the Women`s National Basketball Players Association agreed on Tuesday on the principle of a new CBA that, if ratified by WNBA players and the WNBA Board of Governors, will continue until 2027. The new CBA is poised to offer great improvements in compensation and benefits for WNBA players, while league officials ensure that their players prioritize the WNBA over foreign leagues. The additional cash pool collapses like at least $1.6 million in offseason marketing agreements. The season`s competitions will also include the attraction of the Commissioners` Cup, which will be explained in more detail when the league announces its schedule for 2020 at the end of the week. The term « basic player, » who wanted to remove the most in the league, survived in the new CBA, but its strength will shrink. The core of the player designation essentially functions as a franchise tag, so teams can force players to stay. It could have been applied up to four times to a single player, which is for very little superstar movement, as well as boring low seasons and negotiation deadlines. Under the new agreement, players can only be appointed three times in 2020 and 2021 and only twice until 2022 and beyond. The new agreement also addresses one of the main problems for players: revenue sharing. They currently receive about 20 to 30 percent of the league`s revenue. The new contract proposes a 50-50 model for revenue sharing by 2021 – when the league achieves revenue growth targets for broadcasting contracts, marketing partnerships and licensing agreements.
Under the new agreement, players have the option to increase this division to 50-50 – but only if certain revenue targets are met in marketing and broadcast sales. This forces everyone to develop the game to maximize sales. At a time when U.S. National Women`s Soccer and American football are fighting in court over wage differences and questionable working conditions, WNBA players and their leagues have conducted productive negotiations.
