Board with WIPA
THE West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has told aggrieved West Indies cricketers that the West Indies Players Association (WIPA) is the only bargaining unit it recognises to act on their behalf.
Additionally, the regional governing body is insisting that the recently signed memorandum of understanding/collective bargaining agreement (MOU/CBA) between the WICB and WIPA must form the basis of any negotiations between the two entities.
WICB president Dave Cameron spelt out the board’s position in a letter to ODI captain Dwayne Bravo in response to correspondence from the players seeking to have the board intervene in helping to remedy the impasse between themselves and the top brass of WIPA.
In their letter to Cameron, the players advised the WICB head that WIPA had no authority to speak on their behalf and also indicated they had collectively determined they would not accept any contracts arising out of an agreement if they had not been privy to the terms and conditions.
