Posted by Melissa Eisenberg on February 17, 2019 06:51:17While we’re still waiting for the CABIC to report, here are some key takeaways from the AFL’s new collective bargaining agreement.
What’s in the new CBA?
The CBA includes three new elements.
The first is the introduction of the “CBA’s cascading” effect.
This is where a team can negotiate an agreement with an outside entity that can make the same demands in the same manner but has a higher negotiating power and more influence over the agreement.
For example, a team that wins the flag but loses the AFL Grand Final will not get to negotiate with the AFL for a similar deal.
The AFL has said it expects teams to negotiate for three years to “re-establish the bargaining position of the clubs”.
It’s an option that would be attractive to AFL clubs as the current CBA only expires in 2020, and the AFL would like to retain a strong position.
The second is the elimination of the five-year “rule of thumb” and the use of a formula for calculating the salary cap.
The AFL has a long history of using the rule of thumb, and in this instance it’s the only factor used.
This formula allows for teams to increase their salary cap to around $4.2 million a year, or around $6 million a team in the 2017 season, without having to exceed the salary caps of other teams in the competition.
The rule of thumbs were introduced in 2017 as a way of balancing the salary budget.
The rule of threes were meant to be an “effective mechanism” to reduce the impact of the salary-cap laws.
It has been widely criticised as unfair and it was abolished in 2021.
It’s the third element, the introduction and retention of a salary cap that has attracted the most attention from the industry.
The cap will be capped at $2.1 million a season for players and $2 million for the clubs.
This will be higher than the $2,000,000 cap the AFL has been using since 2016.
While the AFL says the cap will have to be capped to “protect the integrity of the competition”, the salary figure it’s proposing is a massive jump from the $1.2 billion cap the club can earn without a cap.
The fourth element is the creation of a new salary cap for teams in other sports, which is likely to be less than the cap.
While there is a chance that some of the existing sports will have lower caps, this is not a certainty.
The fifth element is a new “rule on the table” to determine the salary range for each team, which could include an increase of more than $2 per week, or a decrease of $1 per week.
While this is a huge change, it is not necessarily a bad one.
There are still many details to work out before the CAA is ratified.
The new CAA has a couple of key benefits for the AFL, including the ability to negotiate directly with other teams.
This means the AFL can negotiate with teams directly in a negotiation session and negotiate the salary levels with clubs.
This would be an important change, as the salary figures currently negotiated by the AFL are “burdensome” to other clubs.
The biggest question about the CAC is how much the salary changes will affect the salary structure of the AFL.
The salary cap will continue to be at $4 million per team for the next two seasons, with the next cap in 2022 being about $6.2m.
The CAC has also said it will increase the salary for players.
This is expected to lead to a rise in the salary of players, although the CAG is yet to release details of what this increase will be.
In other words, it’s a tough sell to AFL players that the salary increases are coming.
There are two main ways to interpret the new salary structure.
The first is that it will have a significant impact on the salary structures of other AFL clubs.
However, this argument ignores the fact that this change has the benefit of creating a salary structure for other teams, with a higher salary cap in 2021 and higher cap for 2022.
It will also lead to an increase in the wage gap between players and the wages paid to the AFLPA, which will lead to increased salary demands for other AFL players, which would further increase the wagegap between players.
This increase in wages could have a detrimental effect on the salaries of players in other AFL leagues.
For instance, a player who plays in the NAB Rising Star game, for example, will receive about $2 more than the salary earned by someone who plays for the WAFL or Collingwood.
It is not clear what the impact will be on other clubs, including Victorian clubs.
Some have argued the new cap will create a salary imbalance in their clubs, and they will seek
