Eibar negotiates a drop in wages with Players
Eibar is about to close an agreement with the Players of the first team; so that wages are lowered thus avoid an ERTE that would affect all the club’s 200 workers. Eiber has been negotiating with the players for a few days; so that they agree to reduce the memorials depending on what happens with the outcome of the season.
Thus, as they point out from Cope Gipuzkoa, the Jose Luis Mendilibar squad is about to give the go-ahead to a 10% reduction in case the League continues its course behind closed doors. If the competition is not resumed this reduction would be 20%. Despite the fact that Eibar is one of the League clubs with the greatest financial strength; thanks to the 43 million that it has in cash, it is no stranger to the economic fluctuation of recent weeks; which has left the coffers without income for more than a month.
Own Jon Ander Ulazia, CEO of the company, confirmed a few days ago that regardless of the duration of the confinement and collective paralysis, “the economic damage will be great, many millions of euros”. In fact, he described the definitive suspension of the League as a hecatomb. “The scenario of total suspension of the championship is catastrophic, it would mean very important losses, mainly economic, but also social”.
Regarding the economic health of the armory entity, the CEO pointed out that
“it is one thing for us to have muscle and another thing that we are going to squander the patrimony that it has cost us so much to generate. We will act responsibly “
The Eibar is close to closing the negotiation with the squad; which would accept to lower the emonuments by between 10 and 20 percent depending on what happens with the season..
