Pro Cyclist Union

Recommended Posts

Read a article in Die Burger (about a week ago) by Willem de Swart.




Andrew Mcclean suggest (I think his name was quoted), that a letter was send to all Pro teams in SA to start a Pro Cyclist Union.




Also mentioned was a example of the Ronel v Wyk and Liberty issue.




The Union is to ensure that the Team Owners don't take advantage of cyclist. etc..




But they are very dissapointed that Barloworld don't respond back on the letter send by "someone".




Not sure the detail, but something in this line.




Now I just wondered:(and keep in mind that I will get fired if I don't perform in my work or not producing results)




1) Will the sponsers than adjust the contracts will a "performance" closule, were if a rider don't perform or show results , he / she can loose their "job" on the team.




Are SA Cycling so strong to try this with sponsers?




I don't think so.

Not sure what you're actually saying there? But most contracts have performance clauses and performance reviews on a monthly basis, at which you have to produce your training diary and if neccesary a doctor's certificate if you're riding ***.
