The WNBA and its players` union announced on Tuesday morning that they had reached a preliminary labour agreement that represents a profound change in the allowances and resources available to players. NEW YORK, January 14, 2020 – The Women`s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the Women`s National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA) announced today that they have reached an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) until the league`s players and board of governors are ratified. – At least $1.6 million in league and off-season team marketing agreements, which would recognize both the best performances and highlight the diversity of the league and create up to $300,000 in additional annual cash for selected players. – At least $750,000 in prizes for special competitions that will begin with the 2021 season. – New participation of 50-50 sales from the 2021 season, based on the league, which achieves sales growth targets from broadcast agreements, marketing partnerships and licensing agreements. – Increased cash bonuses for performance bonuses (z.B for WNBA MVP and Rookie of the Year) and newly created cash bonuses (e.g. B for each player named “WNBA All-Defensive First Team”). At a time when U.S. National Women`s Soccer and American football are fighting in court over wage differences and questionable working conditions, WNBA players and their leagues have conducted productive negotiations. These negotiations resulted in a mutually beneficial agreement in the workplace and, most likely, a more marketable league for fans and consumers. The WNBA`s new collective bargaining agreement, announced last week and announced for its progress, follows a season in which the League`s odes to empowerment and their work practices have become economically irreconcilable.
On social media, players have documented all sorts of headaches — annoying travel delays on commercial flights for street games, 6-foot and 6-foot feet stuck in medium-sized seats — a lot of these disruptors because they were daily, the troubles you and I have of talentless Nobodies , tolerate, but that, stratospherically, should not tolerate good basketball players who depend on their bodies. A steep pay rise for players across the league is perhaps the most remarkable element of the new contract.
