The NFL and the NFL Players Association this weekend concluded a new collective bargaining agreement that prevents a possible work stoppage for at least another decade. Key features of the 2011 CBA included changes in health and safety, including a reduction in the number of off-season exercises, a two-day training camp ban and a limitation on contact practices in both pre-season and regular season.   The new CBA also included increases in player performance, including retroactive pension increases for retired players and the creation of a neurocognitive advantage for players with concussions and similar injuries. In addition, the agreement promised to increase wage guarantees for injured players by up to $1.5 million and a new revenue distribution that offered players between 47 and 48.5 percent of total revenue.   Changes have also been made to contractual benefits, with an increase in minimum player salaries and the minimum wage cap, including the guarantee of a 99%-95% league-wide expenditure and the requirement for each club to spend an average of 89% of the salary cap over four years.  “NFL players voted with a vote of 1,019 to 959 to accept ratification of a new collective bargaining agreement,” the NFLPA said in a statement. “This result follows a long and democratic process, in accordance with our Constitution. An independent accountant received the ballots through a secure electronic platform and verified, recorded and certified the results. The agreement also extended each team`s training framework for the 2020 regular season to 16 players, four of whom can be protected each week against other teams.
The NFL had already increased the team`s recruiting team from 10 to 12 players as part of the first new CBA, but it is expected that the addition of four additional executive insurances should active executives test positively covid-19. The winnings players make in the new deal by sharing “a bigger slice of the growing pie,” said outgoing NFLPA President Eric Winston, launched the vote. In a close vote that did not include some 500 union members, NFL players approved a new employment contract with the league. He has a regular season with 17 games, higher salaries, higher service table sizes and higher pensions for current and former players. “New conditions: certain conditions of the new CBA will take effect immediately and the agreement between the league and the NFLPA will be in effect until the 2030 season. According to the NFLPA, the final vote of the players was 1,019 for the proposed CBA and 959 against. In November 1989, the 8th Court of Appeal ruled that team owners were exempt from federal cartel laws as long as players were properly represented by a union.  In the same year, the NFLPA decided as a union and stated that its union status offered more protection to owners than to players.
 The NFL remained without a collective agreement until 1993.  But the fact is that there are literally hundreds of subjects in each collective agreement, which concern thousands of circumstances and concern thousands of current and former actors, which we must examine carefully. In 1982, after the first two games of the season, NFL players went on strike again in an attempt to achieve a guaranteed percentage of the club`s and the league`s revenues.  This strike lasted 57 days, making it the longest work stoppage in NFL history at that time.  The strike ended with an interim agreement on 16 November, which included funds to cover the shortfall in players` wages during the work stoppage.  Negotiators signed a new collective agreement on December 5.
