As such, after weeks of negotiations, this afternoon an agreement has been reached with the Salary Negotiating Committee, in this case with reference to corporate employees, who join the beginning of an agreement reached on Friday with the players and coaches.
The Managing Commission would like to publicly thank the footballers, coaches and employees for their understanding, their commitment and their help to the organisation to make possible this fundamental agreement to guarantee the Club's immediate sustainability.
The Managing Commission considers this to be a great step on the road to dealing with the extraordinary circumstances in which the organisation finds itself due to the global pandemic which has affected everyone since March of this year.
