The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Players Association has complained about the women’s compensation in comparison with that of the men’s national team, which arguably has had less tangible success based on win-loss records. The Players Association has filed a charge of discrimination against the U.S. Soccer Federation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and apparently was also ready to go on strike in advance of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. But the Players Association and the Federation were parties to a collective bargaining agreement that was in effect from 2005 through 2012, and it included a no-strike/no-lockout clause. The parties extended the agreement in 2013 through 2016. It apparently was made clear in emails and other communications between the parties’ representatives that the extension agreement included the no-strike/no-lockout clause. Nonetheless, the Players Association contended that the no-strike/no-lockout clause was not extended because it was not specifically included in the extension memorandum. The parties ended up in court, and on June 3, Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled that the no-strike/no-lockout clause did indeed bar the players from striking. Hopefully, the Players Association and Federation will pull together to put the would-be strikers on the field to strike for some goals in the Rio Olympics this summer.
