West Indies Players Association (WIPA) President and CEO Dinanath Ramnarine is set to negotiate the revised collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
WIPA reminded WICB about the need for an early response to its suggested dates for the negotiations of the new CBA,which is a labour contract,outlining the rights and duties of each parties.
Both the parties — WIPA and WICB — complied with the three-month notice of Article 6 (Revision of the CBA) of the existing CBA which continues in full force until a revised document is agreed to by both parties.
WIPA sent its recommendations for revision with proposed dates and venues last Thursday and is awaiting a response from the WICB.
We have already put our team together,and would like to make sure that they are available for the negotiations, said Ramnarine.
This is why it is imperative that both parties agree on the dates as early as possible, he added.
