Cricket Australia prepared to enter arbitration to end pay dispite

Cricket Australia prepared to enter arbitration to end pay dispite

Cricket Australia seem to be on the back foot as their does not seem to be any solution in the near future with respect to the pay dispute between the national board and the players.

Cricket Australia have also proposed an alternate plan to ensure that the action on the field doesn't take a backseat while a lot of drama unfolds in conference rooms between the two parties.

CA and the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) have been at loggerheads over a new revenue-sharing model for months before the current deal expired at the end of July.

"We believe now is the time for the game to get on, to get played, preparation for tours and the season ahead to happen", Sutherland said.

Sutherland told media in Melbourne on Thursday afternoon that a response to the proposal was expected by "early next week" and that any "residual issues" would be taken to arbitration beyond that time.

If that process has not delivered a sufficient level of consensus to deliver a Heads of Agreement, the matter will be referred immediately to an independent arbitrator with CA pledging to "accept the umpires' decision".

The ACA and players subsequently opted to boycott the upcoming Australia A tour of South Africa after the CA and ACA failed to reach the common grounds in their pay dispute.

The sport's governing body has rejected a so-called "peace plan" as being detrimental to the grassroots game, with the impasse putting Australia's proposed Test tour to Bangladesh next month under threat, along with the following one-day series in India and even the coming Ashes series against England.

"I've had some increasing concerns just about whether everyone is going at the same pace and dealing with this issue with the same level of urgency", he said.

"We offered $30m of our money to grassroots as a peace plan".

"The ACA has recently put forward some proposals in regards to a process through this, including contracting around players".

"Certainly our ability to fund greater investment in grassroots is compromised by the way that plan is put together".

"This Baggy means the world to me".

"Cricket Australia has lost the players and most of the game's stakeholders in the (dispute)", the union said in a statement. "Now CA says there is a crisis".

He said today's announcement by CA would enable players to be re-contracted on an interim basis at the start of arbitration, and to remain contracted until the final MOU can be signed.

Players, having central contracts and state players without multi-year deals, were left unemployed after the deadline for a new MoU was not brokered by June 30.

"We encourage the ACA and the players to take up that challenge and hopefully arbitration is not required".
