Serie A strike averted after players' union meeting

A strike by Serie A players, which would have halted top-flight football in Italy this weekend, has been called off.

The players' union (AIC) announced earlier this month they would strike on September 25 and 26 in protest against the Italian league, who have not renewed the collective bargaining agreement which expired in June.

However, the Lega Serie A and the AIC met in Rome to discuss the collective agreement, and ways to avoid the strike. An agreement has been reached on six of the eight points that had been under dispute, but two areas remain to be resolved and the parties will meet again on November 30.

A statement from the Lega Serie A read: "The strike called by the Italian Footballers' Association (AIC) for this weekend has been suspended. Sergio Campana, president of the union, announced it after the fourth meeting between representatives of the Lega Serie A and that of the AIC regarding the collective bargaining agreement which expired in June.''

AIC secretary Gianni Grazioli added: "We will continue to negotiate until November 30 because there are still two issues where no agreement has been reached.''
