Women’s football takes the Congress: the agreement is formalized

first_imgA chapter in women’s football closes. The 1st Spanish Women’s Soccer Collective Agreement was presented at the Congress of Deputies, after clubs and unions gave the green light this Tuesday with the rubric of this document, which will regulate the labor landscape of the players of the First Iberdrola. After being unanimously approved in the lower house, the president of Congress, Meritxell Batet, accompanied by representatives of all parliamentary groups, the president of the CSD, Irene Lozano, about twenty players and the top representatives of the AFE and clubs, opened the act by crossing out a “historical” date this moment.Ainhoa ​​Tirapu, player of Athletic Club and spokeswoman for the players, she wanted to thank all her teammates for the unity shown in the fight for this document. The Basque goalkeeper also apologized for the delay of this agreement and the possibility that several companions have been harmed by this delay. “I would like to make a reflection. I have been the visible face of this process and people have always told me that I am very brave for it. Today I want to say that courage is that of all those players who in situations much more precarious than mine and less dignified conditions have joined and fought for this agreement. I feel proud of that great unity that this group has shown. Today is a day of celebration, but I have the shin of not having achieved this before and I want to apologize to all those players who have suffered labor inequalities. Today we put the first stone to continue growing in women’s football“Tirapu said in his speech. The president of AFE, David Aganzo: “It has been a negotiation of more than a year and I thank everyone for your sensitivity to this issue. It has taken a lot of negotiation and pedagogical. This first agreement is a labor change for all the players. I want to thank them for their courage and unity. The strike was a turning point in the negotiation It has been long and hard but today you finally have your agreement It is a pioneer agreement in Europe It is a historic day Tomorrow will be another day But it will be another day in which our partners will have your regulated labor rights. ” For its part, the president of the Association of Women’s Soccer Clubs (ACFF), Rubén Alcaine, stressed the hard work of all parties to reach a consensus. “It is something historical. We are very proud since the Association. It has been many months. We have to thank all the clubs and players for this moment. I want to highlight the work of the parties that have worked for women’s football and have allowed us to reach this moment “Alcaine said. The Federation, absent in a historical photoThe Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) did not attend the presentation of the I Collective Agreement of Spanish Women’s Soccer, although this document regulates the working conditions of the players of the First Iberdrola, a new women’s competition that launched under his tutelage this summer the federative entity. “I would have liked to have been all the agents involved in women’s football, including the Spanish Women’s Soccer Federation (RFEF), which is the organizer of the competition and we understand that we all have to work in the same direction. But it is a respectable decision, “Alcaine said after the act in the parliamentary chamber. Aganzo also reminded him: “He is missed. We have tried to be all parties here, but the RFEF has also helped in this agreement and you have to keep working together. “It should be noted that RFEF has not been part of the negotiations in this collective agreement, since legally it is an issue that belongs to clubs and unions. The body chaired by Luis Rubiales asked for a presence at the negotiating table, but the parties refused. It should also be stressed that the arrival of this collective agreement has been possible thanks to the agreement between Mediapro and the ACFF, after the clubs failed to close an agreement with the RFEF in order to enter the Elite Program, initial solution to give viability to the agreement due to the 500,000 euros of revenue per club offered by this plan.The most important points of this agreement– It will be retroactive, with an application date of July 1, 2019.– Minimum salary of 16,000 euros per year at 75% partiality of the working day or, what is the same, 12,000 euros. In this line, it also includes compensation for all the players who currently have contracts with a 50% partiality or working day, with a mandatory change to 75%. Thus, salaries between 12,000 and 15,999 will become 16,000 euros gross per year, applying a linear increase of 2,000 euros in which they are 16,000 to 30,000 euros gross annually. The salary increase would affect 40% of the players.– Maternity protocol: In the event that a player becomes pregnant, she can access an automatic renewal without a limit in the contract. It does not include any section for breastfeeding.– Seniority Plus: the prize of linking would range between 2,000 euros (6 seasons) and 3,500 (9 seasons or more).– The personal scope of the agreement: limited to players who are called at least twelve official matches with the first team or in their case ten games played.– Rest of a day and a half weekly.– Holidays: 30 days per year.– Workday: 7 hours a day / 35 hours a week on a semi-annual basis, not including concentration or travel periods. In the case of home games, the concentration shall not exceed 24 hours, with a maximum period of 72 hours for visiting matches.– Financial consideration for the player of 15% of the agreed price in case of transfer or image rights (agreement between the parties is required). In the latter case, it is established that for a player who exploits her image rights in her own name, the amount that the club satisfies to that for the use of her image, name or figure for economic purposes will be considered as a salary concept.last_img read more

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Article published by Shreya Dasgupta Animals, Biodiversity, Conservation, Environment, Forests, Happy-upbeat Environmental, Herps, Hunting, Lizards, Predators, Rainforests, Reptiles, Research, Species Discovery, Wildlife center_img The only specimen of the monitor lizard Lesson collected on New Ireland never reached its destination in France and was not studied in detail.Since then, it has been believed that the monitor lizards on New Ireland are the common mangrove monitors (Varanus indicus).But the new study confirms that the monitor lizards on New Ireland are a distinct species. On an island in Papua New Guinea, scientists say they have rediscovered a species of monitor lizard thought to be “lost” to science since the 1800s.The medium-sized lizard was first discovered on the island of New Ireland in 1823 by French naturalist René Lesson, who named the species Varanus douarrha. According to Lesson, douarrha was the local word for the monitor lizard in Port Praslin, located at the southern end of New Ireland.The only specimen he collected, however, never reached its destination in France and was not studied in detail. It was likely lost in a shipwreck off the Cape of Good Hope.“Since then, it has been believed that the monitor lizards on New Ireland belong to the common mangrove monitor (Varanus indicus) that occurs widely in northern Australia, New Guinea and surrounding islands,” lead author Valter Weijola, a researcher at the Biodiversity Unit of the University of Turku, Finland, said in a statement.Island of New Ireland, where the rediscovered species of monitor lizard is found. Photo by Valter Weijola.However, when Weijola collected and examined monitor lizards on New Ireland during field surveys in 2012, he found that the lizards are distinct from the common mangrove monitor and are a separate species. His team’s findings were published in the Australian Journal of Zoology.“New morphological and genetic studies confirmed that the monitor lizards of New Ireland have lived in isolation for a long time and developed into a separate species,” Weijola said.The newly described Varanus douarrha is black with yellow spots, and can grow to about 1.3 meters (~4.3 feet) in length. It is the only large native predator currently known to live on New Ireland, the authors write in the paper.Hunting of monitor lizards is common on New Ireland. But current levels of hunting are not likely to pose a threat to the long-term survival of the species, the researchers add.Varanus douarrha is the largest known animal on the island of New Ireland in Papua New Guinea. Photo by Valter Weijola.Last year, Weijola and his team discovered a new species of monitor lizard on Mussau, another island in Papua New Guinea. The turquoise-tailed lizard, Varanus semotus, is thought to be the only known large-sized predator and scavenger on the island.“Together, these two species have doubled the number of monitor lizard species known to occur in the Bismarck Archipelago [of which New Ireland is a part] and proved that there are more endemic vertebrates on these islands than previously believed,” said Weijola.Varanus douarrha was first discovered in 1823, and the only collected specimen is thought to have been lost in a shipwreck.
