as declared in Fairfax Media said Australia’s Rugby Union Players’ Association (RUPA) is considering pre-season strike action if one of the country’s five Super Rugby teams is cut.
Sydney – Australia’s professional rugby players may go on strike early next year if one of their Super Rugby teams is axed in a shake-up of the competition, a report said on Friday.
“The provisions of the CBA, which is in effect until December 31, prevent any industrial action of this nature occurring,” the spokesman said.
RUPA has also launched a petition to save the five-team model in Australia, warning of “permanent damage” to the game if a Super Rugby team was cut.
The union cannot take industrial action during the term of its collective bargaining agreement, but it is understood to be mulling the option during the Super Rugby pre-season next year, the report said.
