Rugby Australia update on RUPA discussions

by Rugby Australia

Rugby Australia continued negotiations today with RUPA to reach an interim pay deal. While an agreement has not yet been reached, Rugby Australia believes that progress was made and that both parties will continue negotiations in good faith for the good of the game.

The meeting was finalised early this afternoon and both parties have gone away to consider their position in anticipation of talks continuing over the Easter weekend.

Rugby Australia is doing everything it can to enable an outcome that will provide short-term financial certainty and enable the game to emerge from this global health and economic crisis and continue to serve the 900-plus Rugby clubs in communities across the country.
