The player union representing the U.S. Women’s national soccer team is speaking out AGAINST the U.S. Soccer Federation’s “identical deals” proposal … saying the whole thing is nothing but a publicity stunt.
The USSF recently announced its plans to unite the men’s and women’s squads under the same collective bargaining agreement by offering identical contracts.
“U.S. Soccer firmly believes that the best path forward for all involved, and for the future of the sport in the United States, is a single pay structure for both senior national teams,’ the USSF said Tuesday.
“This proposal will ensure that USWNT and USMNT players remain among the highest-paid senior national team players in the world, while providing a revenue sharing structure that would allow all parties to begin anew and share collectively in the opportunity that combined investment in the future of U.S. Soccer will deliver over the course of a new CBA.”
