Players' union boycotts strike talks

Players' union boycotts strike talks

Italian Football Association president Giancarlo Abate has said the Serie A and the Italian Players' Association (AIC) will come to an agreement to avoid a threatened players' strike by the end of the month.
On Tuesday The AIC boycotted talks called to avoid a proposed players' strike in Serie A, ANSA news agency reports.
"Tomorrow we will formalize the proposal for a political meeting between the president of the League and the AIC to understand the terms needed to return to the negotiating table," Abete said.
"At this point I think the conditions will be in place in 10 or 12 days."
The AIC refused to meet Serie A officials despite being summoned to a meeting by Abete last week.
Serie A president Maurizio Beretta said the league "expressed dismay at the behavior of AIC," but added that it is "willing to meet around a table again tonight."
The two parties reached an agreement last month to avoid a strike declared for Sept. 24-25, but the players' association warned that if a new contract was not settled by Nov. 30, the strike would go ahead.
