Newcastle is the first club in the Premier to go to ERTE

first_imgCoronavirus also opens in the United Kingdom. There are already more than 1,200 deaths. Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister, had trouble starting with the measures, but yesterday he already addressed his citizens by letter to warn them that “things are going to get worse.” The Premier League, like other European leagues, is standing and watching the future with concern. In this sense, Newcastle has been the first club, as announced by The Telegraph, to benefit from a Temporary Employment Regulation File (ERTE). The British government has offered to companies to pay 80% of their wages due to the cessation of productive activity demonstrated by the coronavirus and for the duration of the crisis. There, as in Spain, companies have also been given this option. According to the English newspaper, in this case, Newcastle have asked the club’s non-first-team workers to take advantage of this option. The British government agrees to pay 80% of the salary for all those who cannot work for the measures taken by the coronavirus up to a maximum of 2,800 euros per month. Newcastle was the first club in the Premier to take advantage of this measure. Other lower-level clubs such as Leeds or Birmingham have already agreed salary deferrals with their players and many others from the Second Division are already preparing it.last_img
