Players strike set to be called off after 6 hour crisis meeting

A strike by Serie A players which threatened to wipe out week 16 of the championship has been averted according to Sky Italia.
The Players Association (AIC) had decided to take the drastic steps in protest against the failure to negotiate a new collective bargaining contract.
AIC President Sergio Campania, Lega Serie A supremo Maurizio Beretta and FIGC chief Giancarlo Abete were locked in conversation until late on Tuesday evening and it now seems that an agreement has been reached.
On leaving the meeting, Campania told waiting reporters that: “There is a very good chance that the strike will be called off.”
He continued: “We have reached an agreement on six of the points in the contract, the seventh point on players that refuse to sign new contracts being forced to train separately from the rest of the squad is still under discussion.”
“But for the moment it has been shelved. The eighth point in regard to forcing players to transfer to clubs that they do not approve of, has been cancelled”
Campania concluded: “We now have to present these proposals to our members and an official announcement will be made on Wednesday”.
It now seems highly likely that this weekend’s schedule will go ahead as planned. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
