PSL Urged Not To Listen To Players’ Union On Contract Issues

Chicken Inn says the Premier Soccer League (PSL) should not listen to the Footballers Union of Zimbabwe (FUZ), a players’ union, as far as contract negotiations with players are concerned.

The Gamecocks’ secretary Tawengwa Hara speaks in the wake of a letter by FUZ secretary-general Thomas Sweswe to PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele pronouncing that FUZ does not believe in a contract rollover and clubs should negotiate contract extensions with players whose contracts expired last year.

Hara said threats of legal action if clubs do not abide by the players’ welfare organisation were a coverup meant to pressurise clubs into abiding by the FUZ’s unreasonable contract demands. Said Hara:

This is tantamount to players dictating what they want from clubs. We don’t mind about the expiry of contracts, but why is FUZ avoiding the issue of compensation? The laws of the land have never been against compensation. PSL has no obligation to abide by what the pressure group is saying. If the pressure group is talking of laws of the land let them go to court and  get an order to force clubs to accept the expiry of 2020 contracts and the issuance of  clearence letters. PSL are only directed by a legal directive from Zifa. So the circulation of such a letter to clubs  is only to create debate, not for clubs to follow.

Clubs have left FUZ dictating a lot of things to them yet they are not near both the Zifa and PSL stautes/constitutions. In terms of which section does PSL take instructions from FUZ.

The local league failed to start last year following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and clubs feel they will just roll over the contracts that expired last season.
